You may need a root canal procedure for a variety of reasons including infection, tooth decay, trauma, or a failed crown.

During a root canal treatment, the dentist will remove any infected pulp, clean and disinfect your tooth, and seal it. A filling or crown is added to restore the function and appearance of the tooth.

How painful is a root canal treatment?

Your dentist numbs the area with a local anaesthetic, so you remain comfortable during the treatment. Anxious patients can request dental sedation if they desire.

Once the numbing sensation wears off, if there is any discomfort, over-the-counter pain medication is normally all that is needed to relieve any soreness.

Can a root canal be accomplished in one visit?

A routine root canal can be accomplished in 1-2 hours, and you will leave with a temporary filling or crown. A follow-up visit is required to place the permanent restoration.

How long before my tooth feels normal?

Your tooth may be sensitive up to a week after the procedure. Most people commonly stop experiencing slight sensitivity when chewing after three days.

We strive to make all of your visits as comfortable as possible.

If you are seeking a dentist who cares about your comfort as well as your oral health, contact us on 01892 522 297 or book your appointment online today.
