Is a root canal painful?

Many endodontic procedures are performed to relieve the pain of toothaches caused by pulpal inflammation or infection. With modern techniques and advances in research on local anesthetics, most patients report that they do not experience any discomfort during the procedure.  We will do everything we can to make your visit as comfortable as possible.

 

For the first few days after treatment, your tooth may feel sensitive, especially if there was pain or infection before the procedure. This discomfort can generally be relieved with over-the-counter or prescription medications.
