My dentist performed a root canal on my first molar three days ago. The procedure was not finished because I had too much bleeding and I was in terrible pain. He said I had an infection and I need to take antibiotics for 7 days then he will be sending me to a specialist to finish the procedure. I fear going back to finish it. I have been in so much pain and I now have a swollen face. I am considering extraction instead. Can anybody give me some advise on this? Should I go back and finish the canal or have the tooth extracted?
I would be very grateful for any help you could give me.
