So in the last 2 weeks I have had a few broken teeth removed (3) and some fillings done (2). The extractions I am told were relatively easy and went well, after we were able to get the anesthetic to work, all three were rather infected after waiting so long to deal with them. After the last appointment where I had 2 removed I have had some residual swelling, and both times I have had some residual pain but nothing otc meds haven't helped. Now my first site is fine, the second side with the swelling is still somewhat pain full, not unbearable by ant means and every day getting better, there is still some swelling on my gum tissue. I am due this afternoon for a root canal in the same area (the tender side) and I am wondering if it is going to be any easier or if it is going to be any worse than the past extractions. Hopefully there won't be as many issues with the anesthetic though this tooth is also rather infected. What is post pain like with a root canal? Thank you!
