General Information

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 will inject a small amount of anesthesia to gently numb a concentrated area of your mouth. For most patients, the feeling of numbness usually subsides after 2-8 hours depending on how quickly you metablize the solution.

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 their general dentist for a permanent restoration of the tooth and to follow up with their dentist every year. For extenuating circumstances, certain patients willl be asked to return to our office. We will send a reminder notice to you when you are due for a recall appointment.
