Pain after Root Canal

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: jessie.touart  (8 years ago)
Hi! I've been experiencing pain after a root canal. I went back to my endodontist and he explained to me that the area around the tooth had a bacterial infection. He put me on antibiotics and told me to come back in a couple weeks. I had been taking the antibiotics for a few days, but was still feeling pain from the infection. Today I had the idea to put hydrogen peroxide on the gums around the tooth where I had the root canal done. Now my tooth hurts extremely bad. Is it possible that the hydrogen peroxide messed up my tooth? Did I do something terribly bad? Can my tooth be saved or will I need extraction? I plan on calling my endodontist Monday morning, but is there anything I can do until then? Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!

Dear Jessie !

Nowadays hydrogen peroxide is an often-used material in dentisrty, it has positive effects, so I think there's nothing unhealthy about it. On the other hand next time it would be wiseful choice to let your issues to your doctor. Calm down, extraction is unnecesary in your case.

If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to send a message!

As hydrogen peroxide is mildly antibacterial, I don't see how it could have "messed up your tooth." Could be a post-operative infection deep in the bone; could be herpetic ulcers on the gums around the tooth. Impossible to say without examining you.

I would like to suggest you that you can use hydrogen peroxide for your teeth. I also used hydrogen peroxide for my teeth. It can give you relief from pain.
