Are Root Canals Painful?

If you’re uneasy about getting a root canal, you’re not alone. For years, root canals have been the boogie man of dentistry because they’re often associated with pain. Luckily, modern dental techniques and technologies have made root canals more comfortable, quick, and easy than ever before. Now, root canals are often compared to getting a simple tooth filling! 

At InSmile Dental, we offer gentle, comfortable, and stress-free root canals. Our entire dental team is compassionate and highly skilled in controlling and eliminating dental pain and anxiety. 

We Make Root Canals Pain-Free and Easy

People often think root canals are painful, when in reality, it’s the tooth infection that’s causing you pain. Before the treatment, Dr. Shah gently administers a local anesthetic so you don’t experience any pain or discomfort, and our team also offers nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) to help take the edge off of any anxiety you may feel.

Once you’re relaxed in the dental chair and your mouth is numb, Dr. Shah gently removes the bacteria from your tooth and seals it to protect it from further damage, decay, or infection. Once the infected material is removed from your tooth, the source of pain is gone. 

After the procedure, Dr. Shah will also review all the dos and don’ts of your recovery, as well as prescribe any pain medication, if needed. Over-the-counter pain medications can also help control lingering soreness after the procedure. 

Your Comfort Is Our Priority

Anytime you walk into our dental office, we want you to feel safe and relaxed. Because your comfort is our priority, we offer noise-cancelling headphones, TVs with Netflix, and nitrous oxide. Whatever your needs may be, we are here for you every step of the way to make sure you get the treatment you need at your own pace and level of comfort.
