Advanced Dental Services
A root canal treatment is necessary when the soft tissue inside of the tooth becomes inflamed or infected. Patients may feel pain around the tooth, prolonged sensitivity, tenderness, or swelling. While most patients feel little to no pain during the procedure, it is normal to feel soreness after. However, the longer the infection sits in the tooth untreated, the more likely it is to feel discomfort after.
What to expect in your appointment
Most cases can be done in our offices and take 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the amount of infection within the tooth and the location of the tooth. Severe cases may need to be sent to an endodontist who specialized in root canal treatments. We recommend regular dental appointments to ensure good oral health and prevent future infections.
