Dr. Edgar and staff are dedicated to providing treatment that is painless and comfortable. Historically, endodontic treatment was perceived as painful. However, with modern technology and better anesthetics, most patients report a pain-free experience and can expect very little post-treatment discomfort. Knowing what to expect while having a root canal can help ease a lot of anxiety.
Your tooth may feel tender for the first few days after treatment, especially if you had pain or infection before the procedure. Such discomfort is usually managed with over-the-counter or prescription medications. Dr. Tselnik will go over the expected healing process and make necessary recommendations for pain control.
In some cases, the tooth may continue to feel slightly different from your other teeth for some time after your endodontic treatment is completed. However, if you have moderate or severe pain or pain that lasts more than a few days, please call our office.
