I don't know if anyone can help me but I had a root canal done yesterday and I'm in a lot of pain and my gums are swollen what should I do?
Root canal treatment. Usually there is a post procedure pain after root canal treatment which should not last more than 3-4 days. If it does then you should contact the treating dentist about this. Usually Ibuprofen (800) mg helps with pain and sometimes an antibiotic is required as well. If pain medication does not help then you should contact your treating dentist. Warm salt water rinses will help with swollen gums.
Agreed. Time to call your dentist. It's common to have some discomfort after a root canal. Assess whether it's getting better or worse, when it hurts (if intermittent), and whether anything you've been doing helps (or aggravates) the situation. Let your dentist (or endodontist) know, and they should have a solution for you right away. Good luck :-).
Call the dentist. Can you call the dentist who treated you? They may be able to prescribe medication that could help. Otherwise you can apply ice to the affected side and take ibuprofen.
