General Information

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.

How many appointments does it take?

With the advanced technology used at our office, it should be no more than one to two appointments.

Do I need to see my general dentist after the root canal is performed?

It is very important to schedule a follow-up appointment with your dentist to complete the restoration process.  This will help prevent possible fractures or cracks.

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.
