It's 2013-04-27 and Im going thru the same pain you just mentioned. I just got a root canal done on my molar#30 about a week ago. The day after the procedure the tooth was ok to some point, no immediate pain. The second day after the dull pain started bothering me and called the office which they advised me to take Ibuprofen. Ive been taking Ibuprofen, 800mg every 6 hours and seems to help but today I realized the pain had gotten worse since I have been in the worse throbbing pain I have ever been in my life. I just got back from a work trip and couldnt really see a dentist, called my dentist in Toronto but they wont be back until tuesday. I dont really know what to do, the tooth feels loose and if I touch it, I feel the pressure inside out the tooth radiating the worse pain to my ear, lower jaw and causing me a headche. I also feel the tonsil from the side of the affected tooth is swollen. At some point I sat down and could feel the pain lashing all over my ear and right side of my face, i could feel a tear running down my cheek, never felt a pain like this before. Im trying to get a hold of any emergency dental office open on weekends in the Toronto area, the pain shouldnt be this severe, something is wrong inside my tooth. Any advices? Thanks.View Thread
