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 2-3 hours.

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 the office 1 year after the procedure was finished. Our office will send a reminder notice to you when you are due for a recall appointment.

How long does root canal treatment take?

Your first appointment will typically be 1 1/2 hours. During the initial consultation you will have the opportunity to discuss with the Dr. when to begin treatment. Usually, there is time to begin at the same appointment. Your next appointment can be anywhere from a week to a month later. Often this will conclude your treatment. Each patient is unique and further treatment or alternate timing may be best for your individual case.
