Hi, Lost a temporary filling from a root canal, was late for the appointment, made to reschedule next Wednesday. Had to take pre-medicate, which I did. Will it be ok to go until next Wednesday and is it fine to keep on taking the penicillin before the appontment? Thanks in advance.

  • If the temporary filling has come out of the root canal then the canals can again get infected. It should be sealed with the temporary filling. Regarding the medication the antibiotics are prescribed for specific days and the dosage ae given accordingly. So with out the consultation from your dentist you should not continue takng the medicine.
