Have had second root canal on same molar Infection keeps coming back Am on antibiotics They work for awhile and the pain illness returns Should you have it pulled or keep trying to kill the infec?
When you have a root canal generally it is performed during 2 to 3 visits. Do you mean second visit to root canal? If you are being told this is a second root canal on the same tooth, find another dentist and stay on the antibiotics. Minimally get another opinion before making a decision. Get x-rayed, and checked again, you should not have pain or swelling after the root canal. Possible underlying other causes.

I had a root canal on tooth days ago. Still taking strong pain pills and antibiotics. Dentist said he does not know anything else to do. Any suggestions?
First continue taking antibiotics, secondly if the root canal was completed you SHOULD NOT be having any pain at all. If your dentist does not know what else to do, you should search out another dentist that can help you. also if you are in that much pain that you need pain killers, something else could be going on. See another dentist as soon as you can, but stay on the antibiotics to be safe.

How long does it take before you need a root canal?
One endotontist told me to hurry up before it got pus in it and the other told me to leave it alone and see if it settled down after the crown procedure. Quack! It depends on the situation, sometimes if you already have an acute infection the dentist may give you some antibiotics to start reducing the infection before having the root canal done. Partially this is done because it is pus can interfere with the anesthetic making it harder to get the area numb. Other dentists will open the canal and allow the pus to drain out of the center of the tooth, this relieves the pressure and pain. If you don't have an acute infection then it is best to get it done a.s.a.p. before one occurs, the longer you let things go the worse the prognosis is for the tooth to be retained long term. -RDH --------- Root canal has to be performed if the dental nerve has died and/or is infected. You may have no pain but still need a root canal treatment. Most common reasons for root canal treatment are bad caries and tooth abrasion at the dentist.

Do you have to have a root canal for having a hole in your tooth?
If your root canal specialist told you that you could wait and not get a root canal because you are not feeling any pain should you get one anyway?
I am not a dentist, but I have had to get a root canal. If they say you need one get it done before it gets bad. I waited too long (I hate the dentist). The pain that the tooth started to cause was unbearable. My whole head was killing me after a while. I waited till it got infected and when I finnally got in I had to have it treated with antibiotics for something like two weeks before I could get the whole procedure done. Anyway, if I had to do it over I woould NOT have waited. Good luck.
