Are root canal treatments painful?
At New Lambton Family Dental, we make every effort to give patients a painless dental experience. Our dentists have experience with numbing and keeping pain at bay.
Root canals have a reputation for being painful, but it is generally the root infection that is causing the pain and not the root canal therapy. We also use rotary endodontics in our New Lambton, NSW dental surgery as well. This is a technology designed to give an easier and quicker root canal. With this therapy, our dentists do not have to file away the damaged tooth, which can take time.
No matter the procedure, Dr Maria Paez and Dr Jonathan Michael are keen to make it as painless as possible. Patients are often surprised by the gentle and easy way our dentists can complete their root canal therapy in New Lambton, NSW.
We always recommend calling for an appointment at the first sign of a root infection because the mild pain of early infection may develop into a dental emergency.
The symptoms of a root infection include one or more of the following:
- Tooth pain or sensitivity
- Jaw pain
- Tooth discolouration
- A blister or bump on the gum
If you’re experiencing tooth pain, we invite you to give us a call.
