    I had a root canal about 5 - 6 years ago. It started hurting Wednesday, the 3rd, but not enough to make me worry about it. Saturday, the 6th the pain became so sever i couldn't take it! Today, Monday the 15th i walked into the dentist office without an appointment and explained my problem and they got me in right away! Ive been prescribed 600mg of Ibuprofen to take every 6-8 hours and an antibiotic called clindamycin to take 3 times a day. The ibuprofen helps a lot but my question is will the antibiotic eventually take the pain away as well? I have an consultation set up for Friday, the 19th, to see what we are going to do, Pull the Tooth or re-do the Root Canal.

  • Is it good to spray detol on your teeth?

    Best answer: Dettol has three main compounds: chloroxylenol, pine oil and castor oil. Pine oil and castor oil are not considered toxic. But chloroxylenol is poisonous and should not be ingested. While not considered that toxic to humans (unless swallowed), chloroxylenol does kill fish.

  • What should I do?

    I have a dental appointment in 4 days to extract a broken tooth and then they are going to do an implant. I really can't afford it but am worried about what it may do to the gum and bone structure. The cost is 4500 but will be added to an existing bill of 1400. should I have the implant done?

    I have a date in 2 hours, and just ate a Subway tuna & onion sub. I hope my breath isn't noticeable. Seriously, am I screwed or just paranoid? I'm gonna try obsessively brushing my teeth.

    Best answer: Expect to not even remember it.

    It's going to hurt like hell for a second and then seemingly one second later, you're going to wake up and be done with the entire procedure. The drugs they use make it seem like no time passed, it's not like going to sleep.

    To put an IV in, you have to insert what is admittedly a pretty wicked looking needle and then the needle gets withdrawn and leaves a little flexible plastic tube in your vein, connected to a port where drugs can be injected. The needle doesn't actually sit inside you.. It just pokes the hole where the actual IV goes.
