Hey! I had a severe toothache since last two days. I tried many home remedies to get rid of this pain, but nothing worked. I don't like to consult a dentist. So I took some pain relievers. But the pain remained same. So I went to a dentist and it was found that I am having a crack in my tooth which has extended into the pulp. The root canal was the only method to be done. For an immediate relief, posterior composite restoration was done. Now I feel better, but root canal should be done as soon a possible. I am 45 years old and also a diabetic patient. Will it create any problem if I undergo root canal? Is the root canal treatment procedure painful? The dentist suggested dental sedatives at the time of root canal. Is it safe to use dental sedatives at this age?
