I have a failed root canal and a bad headache. The dentist gave me antibiotics but I can't get into an endodontist for 2 weeks. Is that even safe?

In brief: Root Canal Therapy

The antibiotics will help control the infection until you can be seen.
If your symptoms are starting to diminish, you should be fine. If your symptoms worsen, then see if you can move your appointment up.
