Questions We Are Frequently Asked About A Root Canal Procedure

Modern root canals are typically no more painful than having a filling. Local anesthesia is used to numb the tooth and surrounding area, making the procedure relatively pain-free. Some discomfort or mild pain post-treatment is normal and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Most teeth can be treated with a root canal. However, in some cases, if a tooth is too severely damaged or if the root canals are not accessible, extraction may be the only option.
What Happens During a Root Canal Procedure?

During a root canal procedure, the dentist will numb the area, place a dental dam to isolate the tooth, create an opening in the crown of the tooth, remove the infected or damaged pulp, clean and shape the root canals, fill the canals with a biocompatible material, and finally seal the opening.
