Root canal Pain
"Just had a root canal this Tuesday morning on my front tooth #9. Even before the numbness from the procedure went away Until this morning I couldn't bite down. I got some Antibiotics (penicillin vk 500) and I am also taking Motrin but it doesn't seem to be helping. The tooth doeshurt when I leave it alone not quite as much though but as soon as I touch it with my tongue or even fingers/lips, it hurts immensely. There is also still some throbbing? I also got Vicodin for pain medicine but that does not seem to help whatsoever.Now today, I can actually touch the tooth and bite down somewhat but there the pressure where the abscess was is still there, right next to my nose. I have alot of pressure on my gums as well like someone is pushing against it. Is this normal behavior for a tooth after a root canal? It was slightly infected when I had it done this morning but dentist told me it wasn't infected badly."
