I had a root canal done on Friday, Monday night I start having pain, I go into the dentist Tuesday he says I'm going to clean out the infection and come back in a week so he can fill in the tooth. I go home and now that the anesthesia is wearing off I'm having the same pain. Do I need an extraction? What should I do? I have an appointment with him later today.

  • If the dentist is still cleaning the roots and has not filled it yet then you need not wooried. As you have an appointment with the dentist you can discuss about your pain and if he thinks that there is still some infection left then he can give one more derssing and that will take care of your pain.
