Hello Everyone, I am from India. Lately i went to my dentist and found out that i needed a root canal. But when we started the procedure it pained like hell-the worst pain i've ever experienced.
Because of the pain the dentist could do only 2 canals out of the 4 in my tooth.
Today I had my second appointment, we could only proceed a little because one of the canals left is where I have the most infection, as soon as we started on that tooth i started crying and my whole body was shaking, anesthesia was not working at all. There is still about 5mm left in that canal. The dentist at last told me that I have an hot tooth.

What should I do ?
Should I continue with the root canal, but the pain is completely unbearable.
or Should i go for tooth extraction ?

Need Help as soon as possible ..
Thanks in advance.

The very first thing that should have been gone was getting x-rays, which I think you did. Then if it shows infection you should be put on antibiotics until your infection clears. There is always the possibility of making the infection much worse when you are talking about your head. Once the infection is gone, the root canal should be easier. With as much pain as you described it sounds like you still have live root in that tooth. The tooth should really be dead before they do a root canal. First thing I would do is get an antibiotic.

Go to a specialist (endodontist) and try and salvage the tooth. I'm a proponent to retaining original teeth if reasonable to do so.

Default Re: Hot Tooth

Hmmm...yes, going to an endodontist would probably be the best solution. Hope you have insurance though. I had that happen once. I am a dental hygienist. The dentist I worked for consulted with the endodontist. He recommended putting some steroid solution down in the canal and leaving it alone for a few days. Then go back in and finish it. It worked. The steroid reduced the inflammation. It's been 25 years, and I haven't had any other problems with that tooth.

There is no guarantee that your dentist would be willing to try this though. Best of luck.

@brokencrayola - Can you suggest me any antibiotics that would help me before my next appointment that is on the next friday. My endodontist doesn't seem to support that idea or by now he must have given me some.
It would be really helpful in reducing the pain.

You can't get antibiotics without a prescription anyway. You need to communicate with your endodontist, tell him you worry that there's an infection due to the nature of the pain, and take it from there.

You should to go sharply an endodontist. If have not any specialist near to you, you should to go to out of your city for a dental specialist. Because a dental specialist can give you a good solution and relief from pain.
