Hi, I got a root canal done a few weeks ago. Because I had a cavity that was really deep in. Weeks later on Wednesday March 17 it started hurting at night. I was crying of the pain. It was the worse pain I’ve felt...I went to the dentist the next day, and my dentist did an X-ray to see what was going on. He said I had a little bit of pus and it got infected. He treated it. And before I left he gave me some antibiotics. It is now Saturday March 20 & it doesn’t hurt AS much as it did on Wednesday. I’ll be seeing my dentist on Monday again to get more treatment. But honestly I can’t stop thinking of the worse possibilities. Because it still hurt just a little bit it makes me think that maybe I’m going to lose my tooth. Or worse...makes me think I will die ... literally. I am able to sleep through the pain I feel now because it’s not as bad as Wednesday night but I’m scared of the worse possibilities. I am hoping to find some experiences from dentists of patients that have gone through this and to tell me I’m overthinking it and that everything will be okay... ?
