My first molar had a root canal done on it but the tooth was to far gone that it failed. This was a year ago. The root canal stopped the horrible pain, but it still hurt when I pushed on it. Went to an oral surgern and the apico success rate for my tooth is slim to none so it has to be pulled.
Right now I am having some slight annoying aching in the tooth and think I should get it pulled before my vacation. I am curious why the tooth would still ache if there is no nerves in it but whatever.
My question is, If I get the tooth pulled 1 week before I fly 2 hours, will that be enough time? Its not a wisdom tooth extraction but still an extraction none the less. I was a little worried about the pressure on the plane.
So is a week long enough?
