One of the benefits of endodontic procedures is that they relieve tooth pain caused by inflamed or infected pulp. We provide local anesthesia during treatment so patients are comfortable and feel no pain.
After your procedure, you may experience tooth sensitivity or discomfort. Follow your endodontist’s post-operative instructions carefully, including whether over-the-counter medication is appropriate for relieving discomfort.
Make sure you contact us if you feel severe pain or pain that lasts longer than a few days.
You don’t need to worry about a higher risk of infection following an endodontic procedure. We adhere to the highest standards of infection control advocated by OSHA, the Centers for Disease Control, and the American Dental Association.
We use autoclave sterilization and barrier techniques to eliminate the risk of infection.
After your endodontic procedure, it’s important to see your dentist for a full restoration as soon as possible. Until you have had your tooth restored, avoid chewing or biting on the treated tooth.
Most treated teeth last as long as other natural teeth. However, some teeth fail to heal or pain continues. Fortunately, another endodontic procedure can save the tooth.
After your root canal therapy, we will send a record of your treatment to your dentist. Contact their office to make a follow-up appointment for a dental restoration. It is rare for endodontic patients to experience complications after treatment or microsurgery, but if a problem occurs please call our office.
