Will I Be in Pain After a Root Canal?
As a Buffalo Endodontist, I often talk to patients that wonder about pain or whether they will experience any discomfort during their root canal treatment. Watch this video to learn why you shouldn’t worry about our pain-free root canal therapy.
- Pain may be your first thought when you hear the words, root canal; however, we expect you to have zero pain.
- Afterward, you’ll be numb for a few hours, but can go right back to work, play sports, or do whatever you normally would.
- Once the anesthesia wears off, expect a dull achiness or mild throbbing, but that’s the extent of your discomfort.
- Most teeth will be slightly tender for chewing; however, most teeth were at least slightly tender when you come in, and that will continue briefly.
- We usually recommend over-the-counter ibuprofen if you’re medically able to take it.
