how long would it take to see an infection on an xray afer your tooth has been root canaled? Let`s say there was still an infection in the tooth after the root canal would an oral antibiotic take care of it ? Thanking u in advance!!!
If you are concerned about the success of your root canal, I would recommend that you see the person that performed your root canal (dentist or endodontist) approximately six months after treatment because radiographic changes would probably be evident at that time.
Also, please refer to the following previously answered questions for additional information.
