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

If the tooth is fractured, the dentist may place a temporary filling or do a pulpotomy (remove nerve) and have you return for permanent filling or root canal procedure. They will want to take an x-ray of the tooth to determine treatment. ...Read more

What is the best drug of choices for dental pain? And antibiotics for dental pain

What is the best drug of choices for dental pain? And antibiotics for dental pain

Depends: In cases where the pulp is inflamed, that is where teeth are sensitive to hot and/ or cold, anti inflammatories like alleve or advil work best. When a pulp is necrotic (dead and infected) then an antibiotic in addition will help, along with pain meds. Either way, don't self treat. See your dentist asap. ...Read more
