I just had a pulpotomy and my root canal is scheduled for a week from now. I got it because I was crying because my tooth ached so bad. I will admit, it helped. However, it's been two days and at times I am still crying in pain. I guess the plus is I can sleep at night, but I am still counting the seconds until I can get this issue completely resolved. Pain meds do nothing and the pain is constant and unbearable!
