Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I had a sinus operation last week but have developed a pain in a tooth that needs a root canal treatment. It is extremely painful. Is there anything that can be done?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Get an appointment as soon as possible and take painkiller tablet Brufen (Ibuprofen) 400 mg six hourly if you are having really severe pain, otherwise eight hourly like three times a day for three days. Do not lay down straight at bed at night. It aggravates the pain. Put some cushions and high pillows, raise your back while sleeping. If pain still gets aggravated then you need to go in an emergency room and get chamber of root canal tooth opened in the emergency so that pressure of infection gets released and then you continue with root canal at regular visits later.

Stay happy and blessed.
