I have a tooth that needs a root canal. I’ve got one scheduled, but I’m in so much pain even with antibiotics. Why is it still hurting? Also, do they hurt alot?

The reason you are still hurting is because the infection is still there in the pulp of your tooth. That is why you need a root canal treatment. Antibiotics won’t kill the infection. Fortunately, the root canal will take care of it. To put your mind at ease, root canal treatments are rarely difficult on the patient. However, if you’re nervous, we can give you anesthetic.
