Always remember one thing, Pain killers are not treatment, they are just measures to reduce or eliminate the pain, so that we can buy some time and continue towards our final treatment.
If you will not take root canal treatment
, then few days after discontinuing your pain killer medication, the pain will eventually start once again after few days to a month.
Dental Disease is progressive disease, so within this time of not having pain, the disease would have progressed to another level thus resulting in more damage.
So its strictly advisible that you should not rely on pain killers, instead you should get your Root Canal Treatment done.
You dont have to worry about the procedure, its totally painless. If you want to see some Root Canal Videos then you can check them out at Dental Care Forum : RCT videos
