Common Questions

Will the treatment be painful?

Many endodontic procedures are performed to relieve the pain of toothaches caused by pulp inflammation or infection. Today, we understand a great deal about pain management. With modern techniques and anesthetics, the vast majority of patients report that they are comfortable during the procedure.  For the first few days after treatment, your tooth may feel sensitive, especially if there was pain or infection before the procedure. Over-the-counter medications, such as Advil® or Tylenol®, are usually enough to manage this sensitivity. In some cases prescription medications may be necessary, and are available.  Our number one prioroty is making sure you are comfortablke before, during, and after the procedure.


Will I need to return to your office for follow-ups after the procedure is finished?

Yes, for most root canal treatments, we recommend that patients return to the office 1 year after the procedure was finished. Our office will send a reminder notice to you when you are due for a recall appointment.
