root canal

Postby ffsgrelier » Fri, 20 Apr 2007 12:38 pm


Am a dentist too but stopped practising a while ago to look after my children.

I know what you have found on the internet but as you are in the middle of the treatment, it is quite common for the tooth and environment to react as the treatment clears the whole canal system and disrupts the bacteria that were the cause of the initial problem. It should ease within a few days though.

However, i assume your dentist has warned you that every root canal treatment is not succesful, each individual and each tooth reacts differently. as you are going this we, no need to panic.

You should def not stay in pain. ibuprofen or paracetamol should relieve the pain but should it persist or should you have any swelling of the gum around the area, contact your dentist again.

now, all this is just general advice, your dentist is the only one who has seen xrays and tested the tooth accurately for his or her diagnosis so he or she is best to discuss it with you.

Hope it helps.
good luck
