  • ROOT CANAL advice please

    Hi,

    4 days ago I had a root canal treatment, where the roots/nerves of the left lower molar were taken out.

    Since then I have pain there.

    Arnica and Ruta do not give help.

    I wonder if Hypericum may help, where there are no nerves anymore?

    Or on the contrary - may it aggravate the situation if a part (even the smallest) of a nerve is still remaining in its place and Hypericum will protect it and allow it to re-grow?

    Waiting for your helpful advice.

    Rafy

    Hi Rafy,

    I've never heard of hypericum causing a root canal nerve to re-grow...

    You also might look at the rubric: Tooth, pain, after filling: acon, alum,
    arn, calen, chlol, ham, hecla, hep, hyper, kali-p, mag-p, merc, merc-i-f,
    nux-v, sep, staph, tril.

    Can you describe the pain, and any concomitants?

      Hi Rafy - I don't know if this might help, but having had many root canals
      myself...the situation may be helped along by homeopathy, only AFTER you see
      your dentist to see what went wrong with the procedure...
      A properly performed root canal procedure should not result in pain....(it
      is invasive and it has been much discussed on this site how unnecessary a
      procedure it may be)...but still should not result in lasting pain.
      My dentist told me that if there is pain after a root canal...that perhaps
      the infection was not cleared up via antibiotics before the
      procedure..apparently they do not do root canals if there is swelling or
      infection...they clear it up first...if you had slight infection...then the
      build-up of gases UNDER the sealant may be causing the problem...I had this
      once about 10 years ago...severe pain after a root canal...I went back to
      the dentist, who, as soon as he took out the sealant...the pain subsided
      somewhat...he had to go back to take a bit of nerve he didn't get the first
      time...too.
      X-rays will determine whether there is inflammation of the tissue and
      canal...and if there is a bit of root left in there....then you can treat
      homeopathically...
      If there is no root there anymore, you should not be feeling pain...
      I feel for you as it is an awful, awful procedure....on the other hand,
      Aconitum worked short term for me when I was waiting to go back to the
      dentist.

        Another reason is that there is a crack in the tooth, so it is not sealed by
        the root canal treatment. Only solution is extraction, which should have
        been done in the first place.
