Root Canals Shouldn’t Hurt | Pain After a Root Canal Treatment
Pain is the primary concern any time you hear the words, root canal. In fact, however, when you do have the treatment, we expect you to have zero pain. Following the treatment, you’ll be numb for a few hours. You can go right back to work, play sports, or do whatever your normal life would have included that day. Once the anesthesia wears off, you can normally expect a dull achiness, and even a mild throbbing would be the extent of your discomfort. Most teeth will be slightly tender as you chew; however, most of them are slightly tender when you come in, and that will continue for a little while. We usually recommend taking over-the-counter ibuprofen if you’re medically able to do that. That usually takes care of everything.
