Why get a root canal?
A root canal is needed when damage occurs to a tooth’s pulp – oral tissue contained inside the hard exterior of the tooth. This can happen due to an injury or due to severe tooth decay. A root canal is often a dreaded procedure but is often the only alternative to having a tooth extracted. Root canals are also very effective at eliminating tooth pain.
Does the procedure hurt?
We believe strongly in practicing gentle dentistry, so while root canals can be lengthy and may require multiple appointments, our team will work to make each appointment as comfortable as possible for you. A root canal involves an anaesthetic to keep pain at bay, so it’s nothing to be afraid of and is often no more more painful than a regular dental procedure, such as a filling.
What about afterwards?
A root canal is generally a bit sore or numb after the procedure, and can even cause mild discomfort for a few days.
