Does Root Canal Hurt?
Root canal is known to be a painful, stressful, and uncomfortable procedure. But this is actually quite far from the truth. In reality, root canals are completely painless, and are actually the best way to get relief from the discomfort of a damaged, infected tooth.
Root Canal Procedure is not painful.
The truth is it’s your tooth that hurts, not the actual procedure. When you need a root canal, it’s usually because there is an infection deep within you tooth or decay that is so bad your natural tooth is at risk. That infection or decay is the reason you’re in so much pain.
Root Canal procedure is performed with dental anesthesia.
During the procedure itself, you’ll only feel pressure while we work to save your tooth. We make sure the area is thoroughly numbed before we even begin working. You’ll probably feel some discomfort or even pain after the procedure and once your mouth has regained feeling. But don’t worry, we’ll send you home with detailed aftercare instructions to help you keep the area clean and manage your pain. Post-procedure discomfort or pain usually doesn't last longer than 1 or 2 days and can be managed with over-the-counter painkillers.
There are a lot of misconceptions about root canals. The bottom line is that your tooth hurts badly and the removal of the infection or decay causing the pain is only mildly uncomfortable compared to the pain you’re already feeling. We want to make sure you’re comfortable the whole time.
