Serious toothache in molar need a root canal. What can I take to ease the pain till next monday when i see dentist?
If I were you: If i were you i would request your dentist see you tomorrow on an emergency basis to start treating the tooth and relieve the pain. If your dentist can't do that, i would consider seeing another dentist. If waiting until monday was as a result of your scheduling, i would consider my priorities and make other arrangements. That's me. If you want to wait, otc pain medication is all that you can do. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Need root canal on upper back left molar. Had it filled 8 times, always hurts a lot. Afraid a root canal will hurt even worse, I might not be numb.
Root canal: You should see an endodontist for the best outcome for your root canal. They are well trained in getting patients numb and making this procedure as comfortable. Make time because the source of the pain is removed you feel much better very quickly. Make sure that you follow up with your dentist and protect the tooth with a crown. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Possibly neither one: ....... If the cavity is of a small size, your dentist can most likely fix it with a simple filling. If the cavity is penetrating deeper, then you might need a root canal treatment, followed by a crown. And if the caviry is encompassing major area of your tooth that renders it un-restorable, ....Then you should think about having it removed (atraumatically), and later on implant and a new crown. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Tooth extraction: You can return to work soon after an extraction. You should avoid heavy lifting and bending for at least 24 hours. Follow the post op instructions that your dentist gave you. There are few restrictions following a simple extraction and more following a surgical extraction. The dentist that did your extraction is the best to answer this for your individual case. Call and ask about this. ...Read more
I have a sharp pain on my lower gum, same area where I had a root canal and crown done about 2 years ago. Do I need to get the root canal done again or should I rather just take pain medication to suppress the pain as it is not daily.
Pain: Pain is nature's way of telling you something is wrong. I definitely would not just take pain medication when needed and wait it out. Over 35 years of experience tells me that at some point this will probably flare up and you will be sorry for waiting. Only a dentist who personally examines you and takes x-rays can determine cause and suggest treatment. Make an appointment asap! ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers

Cotton if concerned: The endodontist is trying to prevent pressure from building inside the canal and causing you pain. If you are having a problem with food getting caught in the opening, you can place a small piece of cotton from the tip of a swab in the hole, which will prevent a seal, but keep debris out. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

It depends: Every patient and every operation is a little bit different. Also every patient's job is different. I generally tell my patients that they can go back to work whenever they feel like it as long as there is no heavy lifting (more than 20 lbs) for 6 wks, mainly to reduce the risk of getting an incisional hernia. Also avoid driving or operating heavy machinery if you are still taking pain meds. ...Read more
