Does root canal treatment hurt?
We perform these procedures under local anaesthetic so you should feel no pain. The treatment should give you no more discomfort than having a filling.
How will I feel in the days after root canal treatment?
There will be some discomfort. We can prescribe painkillers to ease your pain.
Will the structure of my tooth be weakened?
We remove the tooth’s inner section, so it will be structurally weaker than your existing teeth. In some root canal cases, we’ll use a crown to reinforce your tooth.
Will the treatment last for a long time?
With a good daily routine and regular dental check-ups, your treated tooth should last for many years.
Could the root canal infection return?
In rare cases, the infection can come back. It’s usually possible to repeat the treatment.
