Root Canal FAQs
A patient requires a root canal when their dental pulp is infected or damaged to the point where it cannot repair itself. Dental pulp damage and infections are caused by deep cavities or damage to a tooth that allows bacteria to enter the pulp. Damage and infections to the dental pulp can cause the tissue to weaken and possibly die. A root canal helps to reverse the damage and prevent any further problems.

The first week after a root canal procedure is when most recovery pain and discomfort can be expected. There will be soreness in your jaw from having your mouth open for the duration of the procedure, as well as some tenderness around the area of the procedure. Often post root canal recovery pain is at its highest around 24 hours after the procedure is completed. Most pain can be managed with over-the-counter medications. When sleeping for the first few nights, it is best to keep your head elevated to alleviate pain and discomfort.
If you are experiencing large amounts of pain, exhibiting symptoms that your dentist did not warn you about, or you are otherwise concerned, contact Warmstone Family Dentistry so that our team can find the best course of recovery for you.
Contrary to popular belief, no, a root canal procedure is not painful. Our team at Warmstone does our best to provide you with a comfortable environment for a painless root canal procedure. If the dental pulp is already dead before the procedure, there are no active nerves, so you won’t feel anything. If the dental pulp is not yet dead, a local anaesthetic will be used to numb the area and manage your pain.

The length of a root canal procedure depends on the level of care that you will need and the timeline that your dentist thinks is best for your procedure. In most cases, a root canal procedure will take between 30 and 90 minutes to complete. Some dentists prefer to complete a root canal over several appointments whereas others prefer to complete it in one visit.
