my dentist said need kto have a root canal but he gave me pencillin for the infection shouldnt that clear it up
In my experience no. I had an infected tooth and had to have a root canal and take an antibiotic. The root canal was not at all bad but depending on insurance it can be expensive.
it should clear up the infection process but after that if you don't have the decayed tooth taken care of you will be right back where you started from sorry to have to tell you that but it happened to both me and my mom
The antibiotic is to clear up infection so they can do the root canal procedure. They can't do the procedure if there is active infection present. Sorry to say, you will still need the root canal :(
