Flying mid root canal



Feb 5, 2020
Hello! I did the first part of a root canal on my lower back molar today. No infection just a filling too close to the nerve causing pain. He started it and realized he didn’t have time to finish so cleaned it out and put in a temp filling. My only concern is I’m flying next week before he can finish the canal. Is that going to be a problem? Will it cause pain? I forgot to ask when I left the office. Thanks!
No way to tell from here, why don't you ask the dentist, who'll have the benefit of knowing exactly what they did to the tooth?
I had a tooth out a few days before we flew on holiday back a number of years ago. as I was worried about it clotting again (I googled this) I was worried whether I would get pain in the area in the gap.
