Root canals have a bad reputation for being a painful dental procedure. However most patients report that a root canal procedure feels no different that a standard dental filling.
Calgary patients may experience some sensitivity following a root canal treatment due to natural tissue inflammation. This discomfort can be eased with over-the-counter pain medications such as Advil, Motrin or Aleve.
If your root canal tooth is not filled the same day, you may want to minimize chewing around that area while the tooth is still under repair. Your treated area will still be fragile and this will help to avoid recontamination before the tooth is fully restored.
Calgary Smile Clinic in Calgary is dedicated to the comfort and satisfaction of our patients which is why we follow up with a check up call to ensure your best recovery.
