Will the treatment be painful?
We will take every measure to ensure that your procedure is in no way uncomfortable or painful. If treatment is needed, we will inject a small amount of anesthesia to gently numb a concentrated area of your mouth. For most patients, the feeling of numbness usually subsides after 2-3 hours.

Will I need to return to your office for follow-ups after the procedure is finished?
Yes, for most root canal treatments, we recommend that patients return to the office 6 months to 1 year after the procedure was finished. The doctors will discuss with you a recommended recall time.

How do X-Rays work?
Some patients may be concerned about x-ray and radiation exposure. However, patients will only be exposed to less than 1/8 the amount most people receive from one chest film and 1/200 the amount received from natural sources. The benefits are simply greater than the risks.

What are dental radiographs?
Dental radiographs allow for greater detailed evaluation of the teeth, enabling us to see what our naked eyes cannot. It detects cavities between teeth, determine bone level, and evaluates bone health. The roots and nerves can also be evaluated to diagnose lesions or assess trauma damage.
