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.

Do I need someone to drive me?

No. Unless otherwise instructed, you will not need a driver. You will leave the office with the same experience as if you had a filling done. You will be numb but completely lucid and capable to drive.

Can I work the next day?

Most of our patients are completely capable of attending work the next day. There are some individual variations in healing that may occur, but for the most part you should be able to attend your work the following day.
