Common Questions

Will the treatment be painful?

We will take every measure to ensure that your procedure is in no way uncomfortable or painful. If treatment is needed, we use local anesthesia to gently numb a concentrated area of your mouth. For most patients, the feeling of numbness usually subsides after 2-3 hours.  If you are anxious about dental treatment, please let us know and we can discuss several options that will help make you comfortable for your procedure, including sedation.

Will I need to return to your office for follow-ups after the procedure is finished?

Yes, for most root canal treatments, we recommend that patients return to the office 6 months to 2 years after the procedure was finished, depending on what type of healing we need to measure. Our office will send a reminder notice to you when you are due for a recall appointment.
