How Long Does A Root Canal in 5116 Procedure Take?

With modern advancements in dental technology, root canal therapy can be completed in one visit to your Saint Paul dentist. Advanced dental technology allows us to be more efficient to our clients, including root canals.  

Simple root canal cases usually take under an hour, while a more complicated case can take 90 minutes or more.

Many different factors will determine how long the root canal will take, including if there is an underlying fear and anxiety in the patient.  

Is Root Canal Therapy Painful?

Root canals are created to remove tooth pain, but this therapy may cause some pain and discomfort that we treat with local anesthetics. As with most surgeries, there may be some discomfort after the anesthesia wears off. 

Over-the-counter medicine and prescription painkillers allow patients to manage their pain and feel comfortable. While mild discomfort is normal after the surgery procedure, prolonged pain that gets worse should be looked at by the dentist.consultation with any of our professional dentists today.

Root Canals Are Nothing to Fear

Many times, root canals actually end any pain! They don't typically create more pain or discomfort. If you are experiencing severe tooth pain, call Brimhall Dentistry right away.
