Endodontics is a meticulous and difficult procedure, but with the right training and experience it can be carried out painlessly and with reliable results - therefore the skills and experience of the practitioner are vital. Unlike a conventional dentist who may carry out one or two root canal treatments per week, Visage are proud to have a dedicated endodontics practitioner, who carries out dozens of these procedures every month.
Saving your natural teeth, if possible, is the very best option. Nothing can completely replace your natural tooth. An artificial tooth can sometimes cause you to avoid certain foods. Keeping your own teeth is important so that you can continue to enjoy the wide variety of foods necessary to maintain the proper nutrient balance in your diet.
It is normal to feel some tenderness in the area for a few days after your root canal treatment as your body undergoes the natural healing process. You may also feel some tenderness in your jaw from keeping it open for an extended period of time. These symptoms are temporary and usually respond very well to over-the-counter pain medications. It is important for you to follow the instructions on how to take these medications. Your tooth may continue to feel slightly different from your other teeth for some time after your root canal treatment has been completed. However, if you have severe pain or pressure that lasts more than a few days, please contact us.
