What do dentist do if you keep getting an infection on the same tooth after two root canals on it?

I’m about to pull this dam thing out it’s causing a lot of heath problems plus it’s a little bit painful

    4 400mg metronidazole a day for ten days then try another dentist but the infection may be in the jaw bone , if it is you need a medical intervention not dental

    If your dentist didn't manage to destroy the roots during the first two procedures, then you should go to a better dental surgeon.

    If your infection is due to something else, such as periodontal disease, I suggest you find another (and better) dentist who can help you control the disease.

      They said the infection is from the root canal
