: About 10 days ago I had a root canal. My dentist gave me an Rx for antibiotics which I completely forgot to get filled. Two days ago I awoke to a painful left earache, which is still there, but it's accompanied by intense pain in the left side of the roof of my mouth. I got the antibiotics and started taking them yesterday, but I'm wondering if this is all related to the root canal or should I get myself to a doctor.
: Thanks for any help you can give.
You didnt say which side of your mouth the RCt was done, assuming that it was done on the same side as the pain you are experiencing it could all be related . Call your dentist first and let him take a look at the tooth and see if it isnt draing first.the antibiotics should help for a little while.
