I had my very first root canal done about 2 weeks ago. At the same time, I was prepped for a new crown on a different tooth. I was experiencing pain for awhile and they suggested Ibuprofen and gargling with warm salt water.
I’m pretty good at following directions but when they don’t help, I get anxious.
So, I headed back into the dentist office and they gave me a strong anti-inflammatory. I took my last pill yesterday morning and I’m starting to get a dull ache again along with a metal taste. I’m waiting for a call back now to get an appointment for tomorrow.
I wonder if this is normal. The next time I go into the dentist, I will only have one thing done at a time.
Too many things to juggle in Minnesota right now.
