Root Canals III

Monday, I was back in the dentist's chair to get a permanent filling. I told the dentist about the muscle relaxant (Cyclobenzaprine) that my TMJ doctor prescribed. It had stopped the pain in its tracks.

The most helpful things I found for my tooth infection and root canal pain:

  • Hot water bottle for pain.
  • Cyclobenzaprine for muscle spasms and intense pain.
  • Ibuprofin for three or four hours' moderate relief from intense pain.
  • Probiotics (Udo's Choice Super 5 Lozenge Probiotic) for my stomach while I took cleocin (an antibiotic). The cleocin must have killed some of the good bio in my digestive system, which the probiotics helped restore.
