I had gum and tongue pain. what are the remedies for these / What should I do ?

Hi i just had my tooth looked at by a dentist and he went in to do a root canal and an hour later he told me he could not save the tooth. After wards he told me that he would schedule me an appointment the next day to get it pulled. When i came in the next day he proceeded to tell me my tooth was a little abnormal and only had one pin instead two and another dentist told him that he thought he could save my tooth. When i slept that night i had horrible tooth pain. Now my tongue feels swolen and my gums are very sensitive. What should i do ?

Dentist, Endodontics Dr. Manisha Rao's  Response
Hi, the dentist told you that your tooth was anormal. It could be that a canal is missing or calcified. In that case it would be better to go for an extraction. Another dentist may have told you that the tooth could be saved by looking at it or by seeing the X-ray. But the thing is that calcified or unaccessible canals are encountered while treating the tooth. So it is upto you to go for extraction or go back to the first dentist and see whether he can complete the procedure because RCT needs a lot of perfection and experience and the approach differs from one doctor to another. Take care !
