Tooth Pain and Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy does not have to hurt. This procedure has a bad reputation for two reasons: 1) People frequently wait too long after tooth pain begins before they seek treatment and 2) Many dentists don't perform root canal therapy particularly well. Conversely, if root canal therapy is initiated before, or at the onset of, pain then it can be expected to be relatively pain free.
The Center for Special Dentistry® (CSD) has several Endodontists (Root Canal Specialists) on staff to treat our patients. Root Canal Therapy is usually completed in one office visit in under an hour. Patients should ask to see the final x-ray following root canal therapy to learn to differentiate good root canal therapy from one that will likely need retreatment later. It's better to get something done right the first time.
