No infection : If you’ve completed 7 days of Augmentin, it would be very unlikely to have an infection. Just because you do not have an infection doesn’t mean you will not still have pain from the procedure. Usually by this point, most dentists feel comfortable with patients taking OTC Tylenol, Advil or Motrin for pain. Check with your dentist first.

Hard to say...: Can't see the radiograph, can't examine you, can't disagree with the specialist who has actually treated you and can do all of the above. If you are looking for a second opinion, please see another endodontist in your town for a consultation.
