Infected tooth Infec: Until you get the root canal done you will have an infection. Even an antibiotic will not cure this. So you will be facing possible pain, swelling, bad taste until the tooth is treated.

Infected tooth: Your Dentist did the best he could to prevent further spread of the infection, but only root canal treatment or extraction will cure your problem. Please make an appointment to have the treatment accomplished that your Dentist recommended.
