Root Canals 101: What Can You Expect?

Is your dentist advising that you obtain a root canal to address one or more teeth? If so, you likely have a few understandable questions. Let us address three common concerns well in advance.

– You will be given pain-relieving medication before the root canal begins.

– Most procedures are associated with only minor discomfort.

– You can limit subsequent pain by avoiding chewing with the affected tooth (or teeth).

– Over-the-counter painkillers will help relieve any subsequent tooth pain.

“A person will be given anaesthetic before the procedure, so it is usually no more painful than a typical dental filling.”
