Will it hurt?
No. The main downside to a root canal is that it can be a time-consuming process. We’re had several patients fall asleep in the chair while the dentist was working!
How many visits will it take?
Root canals can take more than one visit to your dentist. If this is the case, a temporary filling will be placed on your tooth between visits. Your dentist will advise of the likelihood of this before you start any treatment.
Should I have a crown?
Your dentist will discuss your individual needs with you, but a crown usually adds support and strength to a tooth.
