I have a really painful tooth abscess (with facial and neck gland swelling) and am on antibiotics until next Tuesday. My options are apparently root canal or extraction. I've heard that root canals can be VERY painful. Is this true......I'm a bit of a whimp as far as the dentist goes? The crown of the tooth seems resonably intact (it has been previously filled though), from what I can see the infection took hold via a hole in the gum adjacent to a chip on the tooth edge.Rosie Lee
