Root Canal FAQs

  • What is a root canal?

    Short answer: A root canal is a procedure in which the nerve tissue is removed from the inside of the tooth.

    Long answer: Detailed FAQs
  • Will the treatment be painful?

    We take every measure to ensure that the procedure is not painful or uncomfortable. Each patient is always instructed to alert us if any discomfort is experienced and this is addressed prior to proceeding with the procedure.
  • What is the best thing to take for pain?

    Unless there are other contraindications (consult your physician) I usually recommend 600 mg of Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) about every 6 hours. If Ibuprofen alone is not sufficient to manage any discomfort you may take Tylenol (Acetaminophen) along with the Ibuprofen. If you were given a prescription for a pain medication (Lortab, Tylenol III) you may want to take that along with the Ibuprofen in place of Tylenol. Most prescription pain medications contain a combination of Tylenol (Acetaminophen) in addition to the pain medicine. Combining a prescription pain medication with the use of Tylenol (Acetaminophen) is not recommended.
