Discussions that mention valium

Dental Health board

Hi Lorie

Your sensitivity to heat/cold leads me to believe the nerve in the tooth may be infected which is causing the trouble. My 3 root canals started from deep cavities which were filled....only later to cause pain. I'd consider taking some motrin which helps with the pain until you can get in to see an endodentist. It sounds like you have anxiety about having another root canal. I can understand that fully. Not only do you get anxious about it most root canals run up to $1000 as well. My endo prescribed valium during the procedure more to relax me than anything else and it helped a lot. If you need something stronger than motrin over the weekend you may want to call your dentist...and also to see how quickly he can fit you in since you are in some pain.

Hope you get some relief soon!
