Contrary to popular belief, a root canal treatment is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring that you experience minimal to no pain during the procedure. Any discomfort following the treatment can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medications, and it subsides as the tooth heals.
The duration of a root canal treatment depends on the complexity of the case and the tooth being treated. In most cases, the procedure can be completed in one or two appointments lasting around 60 to 90 minutes each. However, certain complex cases may require additional visits or specialized treatment.
The cost of a root canal treatment can vary depending on factors such as the location of the tooth, the complexity of the case, and any additional procedures required. It is best to schedule a consultation with a dentist to assess your specific needs and provide an accurate cost estimate.
In many cases, a dental crown is recommended after a root canal treatment to protect and strengthen the treated tooth. The crown helps to restore the tooth’s functionality, appearance, and provides long-term durability. Your dentist will evaluate your specific situation and discuss the need for a crown.
The recovery period after a root canal treatment is typically minimal. You may experience some mild sensitivity or discomfort in the treated area for a few days, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications. It is important to follow any post-treatment instructions provided by your dentist to promote healing and ensure a smooth recovery.
