Dear friend.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

In root canal treatment ,once the tooth is cleaned properly(that is bio mechanically prepared) then there should be no pain.
Therefore i would suggest you to revisit your dentist and get the canal preparation completed.

once this is done she will have no pain,as the nerves and infected pulp will be removed during this process.

In the same visit you can request your dentist for changing her antibiotic and analgesic,so that she can have faster relief ,but please remember that in dental treatment just antibiotic and analgesic wont help much.

They are given to localize and minimize the infection,temporarily,where as treatment like root canal gives you complete cure for that infected tooth.

meanwhile ask her to do frequent warm saline rinses.

and maintain very good oral hygiene.

Hope it helps.

Hello and welcome,

I have read your concern.

The pain and swelling during root canal procedure is due to the infected vital pulp remaining within the root canal.
The swelling and pain will usually disappear if the procedure is carried out properly.
If you are not willing for rct,then tooth has to be extracted and replaced with fixed/removable prosthesis.
Take complete course of antibiotics.
Maintain good oral hygiene.
take care.

Thanks for asking the query,

Pain in the root canal treated tooth can be because of several reasons , riinfection of the canal leading to periapical infection , presence of high points , if the tooth is capped there can ge accumulation of food between cap and tooth leading to gum infection and pocket formation .

Visit to a dentist get check up done .
Take an x-ray of the tooth .
Get complete mouth scaling and polishing done .
Maintain a good oral hygiene .
Use saline water gargles 3-4 times daily.
Use 0.2% of chlorhexidine mouthwash solution gargles twice daily .
Take tab flagyl 400mg thrice tab Dolonex thrice for three days .

Hope this helps out .

I am Dr.Neha Gupta (dentist) and am glad to address to your query here.

Generally, a tooth infection, particularly the abscess, requires medical treatment to halt the growth of bacteria and prevent tooth decay. Antibiotics are commonly prescribed to kill the bacteria and contain the spread of tooth infection.

Practicing oral hygiene that includes brushing twice a day, flossing and swishing (rinsing the mouth) immediately after meals and snacks, is the key to healthy teeth.

visit the dentist and complete your RCT procedure as there is infection.

Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at healthcaremagic through my profile directly.
