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.

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.

Can I eat/drink after my appointment?

You will be able to eat/drink normally after your procedure.  However, we do suggest chewing on the opposite side of your mouth for a few days to allow your tooth to heal.  We also suggest waiting until your anesthetic has worn off to eat or drink, as you do not want to risk chewing your cheek, tongue or lip due to numbness.

Is there anything I should do before my procedure?

Feel free to eat and drink normally before your procedure.  You do not need to take any medication prior to your treatment, unless your doctor or dentist has instructed you to do so.
