Frequently Asked Questions

It is in the patient’s best interest and the best for the tooth to be treated as soon as feasible if our doctors have recommended endodontic treatment. Waiting to get treatment done may cause the tooth to break down even more, cause extra bone loss, cause the tooth to become loose, and make it impossible to save the tooth.
Aside from mild stiffness following the injection, the root canal does not cause much pain or discomfort. If you were feeling any pain or discomfort due to the cold prior to the surgery, this should be addressed right once. Biting, chewing, tapping, or pressing on your tooth may cause pain or discomfort for several days to weeks after the treatment because the tissues surrounding the tooth are inflamed and damaged, and it will take time for the inflammation to diminish.
No. While x-rays will be required during your endodontic treatment, we will employ a cutting-edge non-film computerized technology called digital radiography, which produces radiation levels up to 90% lower than standard dental x-ray machines. These digital photos can be optimized, preserved, printed, and emailed or given on a CD-ROM to cotherapists.

There’s no reason to be concerned once more.
