Just had 3 root canals at the dentist, now I have lots of pain?


Just had a (3 roots) root canal treatment at the dentist there was/is an inflammation. Now i have lots of pain. Worse than before the Root canal treatment.

My dentist say’s antibiotics dont help for the inflemmation. Is She correct? Or Should I go to an other dentist for the antibiotics?

Antibiotics does not help with inflammation unless there is an infection
Stay on NSAIDs for now , this is common pain if you remove 3 roots in one session , should have been done one by one
Good Luck
