Buffalo Endodontist Answers “Will I Be in Pain After a Root Canal?”
As a Buffalo Endodontist, I often talk to patients that wonder about pain.
- Pain may be your first thought when you hear the words, root canal; however, we expect you to have zero pain.
- Afterward, you’ll be numb for a few hours, but can go right back to work, play sports, or do whatever you normally would.
- Once the anesthesia wears off, expect a dull achiness or mild throbbing, but that’s the extent of your discomfort.
- Most teeth will be slightly tender for chewing; however, most teeth were at least slightly tender when you come in, and that will continue briefly.
- We usually recommend over-the-counter ibuprofen if you’re medically able to take it.
