heres the thing:
what dentists today dont tell you(and pretend they dont know about is microbial bacteria being trapped within the tooth sometimes travelling to other parts of the body and creating other illnesses.
You need to do some reading on Weston Prices work:
[link to www.healingteethnaturally.com
check that sites out too its pretty good.
it does sound like you have an infection trapped in there.
Usually a normal dentists will clean out the roots(filing the canals) again and again until they'think' theres no infection left.
Antibiaotics sometimes dont work if youd had heaps of them or the infection type changes.
You can try some natural antibiotic remedies like taking colloidal silver, vitC/zinc, garlic,etc.
Youll know your really in trouble if you get an abcess that doesnt form a pimple on the gum and cant drain.
have the put a crown on the root canal?how many times have they filed/cleaned the roots?
did you have an abcess/pain before you had root canal?did it form an abcess that drained?
This root canal (bottom molar) was first done a year ago (it was supposed to be a filling, but after dentist prepped it for a filling, it became sensitive to the touch, so dentist started a root canal. There were shooting nerve pains right after the procedure, so he sent me to a specialist) Specialist finished the root canal and sealed it. I took antibiotics at that time. Tooth never settle for a year (always tender, especially when pressing on sides).
So finally, it was retreated 2 months ago, special medicine was put in it twice (it was cleaned out at least 3 times by a specialist - one of the times it was cleaned, there was a lot of throbbing pain in the gum/tooth right after - so I had to take strong antibiotics).
It got better, but still was tender like before, but a week ago, it suddently got weird pains when eating/drinking hot stuff.
I don't believe there was ever drainage, but as I mentioned there were times after procedure when it was very painful and swollen, I had to take antibiotics, and also a steroid shots.
Another thing happened recently, a top gum/tooth above it got really painful about 2 months ago as well, there was some drainage in that area, and I did a heavy duty oil pulling/silver/oregano/etc that eventually cleared it off. I don't know if it's related....
Root canal is not completed (still has medicine in it).
I have been doing oil pulling every day with coconut oil.
