Had root canal 3 days ago, am taking 500 mg PenicVK, but still swollen with discoloration at tooth?
Is this normal? I have been icing and rinsing with saltwater, etc. Mild to medium pain, mainly from a pressure standpoint, so I have been taking pain meds as well. But I am most worried about the swelling. Root canal was Thursday morning -- it is Saturday morning and 11 Penicillin VK pills later, the swelling has not gone down. Again -- is this normal? Why is it blackish/purplish around the tooth? Dried blood?
