Common Questions

Why do I need a consultation appointment before my root canal?

It is important to make sure that the tooth in question needs root canal treatment. If root canal treatment is indicated, proper examination will allow us to see if the tooth will be amenable to treatment. After a  thorough evaluation, it is not uncommon to find that a root canal may not be the best solution for the patient.  

Will the treatment be painful?

We will take every measure to ensure that your procedure is in no way uncomfortable or painful. The doctor will make sure you are profoundly numb prior to starting treatment.

Can I go back to work after my root canal?

Having a root canal is like having a deep filing. When you leave our office, you will still be numb. However you can resume your day as you normally would.

What if I have questions after my root canal?

Patients are welcome to call with questions at any time. If the office is closed we have a service that will be able to get in contact with the doctor on an emergency basis.
