If you have a severe toothache that’s keeping you up at night and preventing you from focusing on your work, it’s likely a result of a tooth infection. This occurs when harmful oral bacteria gain access to the sensitive network of nerves and vessels in the inner chamber of your tooth, called the pulp. In an effort to preserve your natural pearly white and keep the infection from spreading, we can perform a root canal in Winslow. Contact our team today to learn more about this common procedure and how you can achieve relief from the pain.
High-Quality Dental Restorations
While you will feel no pain throughout your root canal procedure, you can expect to experience some soreness and discomfort once the anesthesia wears off. This is completely normal and can be treated by taking an over-the-counter pain reliever as instructed. If we prescribe any medication, please be sure to take it according to the instructions provided.
You might also have mild sensitivity following your root canal, but do not worry, as it should not last more than a few days. Getting plenty of rest, avoiding hot or cold foods or beverages, and ceasing the use of tobacco in the days following your procedure is important for successful healing.
Should you experience pain that lasts longer than a few days or increased sensitivity, make sure to contact our office as soon as possible.
