had a root canal yesterday and today Im still throbbing alittle. Seems to be a occassional throb on the upper teeth in that area. (the root canal was on the lower right molar--2nd from the back)I was put on a antibiotic for a day in a half before he did the root canal and told me to stay on it for a week then come in and he would finish it up. Does this seem normal? people told me you never do a root canal until you have finished the antibiotics first?
