Gather more info!: If you have a question with no apparent answer, more info is needed. It could be one tooth, several or simply how they fit together. Fortunately, 2 dentists already indicated you have no obvious & urgent problem; now you need to determine which tooth/teeth, what perpetrates pain, when it happens, etc. Coordinate with your dentist, and ask her/him for a referral if the answer is too vague. ...Read more

Sorry to hear: If your question is how to manage pain must bring down inflammation and infection via Ibuprofen and antibiotics which you have been on. Make sure you take the Ibuprofen 600 or 800 mg every 4 to 6 hrs for 1st 24 hours until the inflammation is down so pain is less. If everything went well with root canal then have to wait, if u get swelling need to change the antibiotics. Report clearly to your den. ...Read more
