I am a 36 year old male. I had a root canal treatment five years back. Since the last two days, I have severe pain in the same tooth. Irrespective of a cold or hot sensation, the pain was constant. My dentist has prescribed Oflox OZ and Meftal forte for five days and advised re-RCT. Please find the attached X-ray. I am not convinced that the infection is severe enough to be considered for re-RCT. Please advise if it can be treated with medicines alone so that I can avoid going through an RCT again.

I have seen the X-ray (attachment removed to protect patient identity).
