Frequently asked questions about root canals

Is a root canal procedure painful?


Thanks to our sedation options and modern dental techniques, the procedure itself is generally pain-free. Most discomfort comes from the infection before the treatment. Post-procedure, any mild discomfort or sensitivity can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain medications.

How long does a root canal take?

Generally, it can take 1-2 visits, with each session lasting about 90 minutes. At your appointment, we’ll give you a more accurate timeline based on your specific case.

What should I expect after a root canal?

After a root canal, it's normal to experience some sensitivity or discomfort in the treated area for a few days. This can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. It's important to follow any aftercare instructions provided by your dentist, including oral hygiene practices and avoiding chewing on the treated tooth until it has been fully restored.

How successful are root canals?

Root canal treatments have a high success rate and can last a lifetime with proper care. Following up with the recommended restoration (like a crown) and maintaining good oral hygiene is key to ensuring the longevity of the treated tooth.
