Frequently Asked Questions
What is Root Canal Treatment?
A root canal is when the inflamed or infected pulp (or soft tissue) is removed from the root system; the canals of the tooth are cleaned and filled without removing the tooth or the actual roots. The longer you postpone treatment, the more you risk the chance to save your natural tooth.
Will the Root Canal Treatment Hurt?
With modern technology and anesthetics, you may experience minimal pain (if any). In fact, many of our patients have actually fallen asleep in the chair during treatment. After treatment, you may have some minor discomfort which usually subsides within 2-3 days.
What do I do Once My Root Canal Treatment is Complete?
You should schedule an appointment with your general dentist, no sooner than a week but no longer than 6 weeks following your root canal treatment. Your general dentist will restore the treated tooth. In the meantime, be sure to practice good oral hygiene, including brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups and cleanings.
How Soon After My Root Canal Treatment Can I Eat?
Dr. Hall recommends waiting at least 30 minutes after the procedure or until the numbness in your mouth wears off before eating. Avoid hard foods until the final restoration has been placed by your general dentist.
How Soon After My Root Canal Treatment Can I Brush My Teeth?
Once the temporary filling in the top of the tooth sets, you may brush your teeth normally. This typically takes about 15 minutes. However, if you regularly use a sonic toothbrush or a Waterpik®, Dr. Hall recommends not using them on the treated tooth until the final restoration has been placed. Instead, switch to a manual toothbrush until you see your dentist.
