Does a root canal hurt?

The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, so you shouldn't feel any pain during the treatment. However, some discomfort and sensitivity are possible during the recovery period.

How long does a root canal take?

The length of the procedure varies depending on the tooth's complexity and the severity of the infection. Generally, it can take one to two visits to complete a root canal.

Will I need a crown after a root canal?

In many cases, a crown is recommended to protect the tooth and restore its function after a root canal, especially for molars and premolars, which endure substantial biting forces.

How long does the recovery take after a root canal?

You may experience some sensitivity or discomfort for a few days following the procedure. Over-the-counter pain medications can help alleviate any discomfort.

What are the alternatives to a root canal?

The only alternative to a root canal is extracting the infected tooth. However, this can lead to other dental issues and should be considered as a last resort.

Can a tooth that had a root canal get infected again?

While uncommon, it's possible for a tooth to become re-infected if there is a breakdown in the restoration or if new decay forms. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene can help prevent reinfection.
