Root Out the Problem of Root Canal Pain


A tooth that is severely decayed or infected may require a root canal. This common treatment removes every trace of infection and prevents any problems from spreading to others. In addition to easing infections, a root canal can also relieve a toothache and promote proper healing. Dentists can perform the procedure, but you may require a root canal specialist called an endodontist. Your dentist can refer you to an expert in endodontics in Mount Dora. Remember that a root canal can soothe your pain, so those rumors about root canal pain are false. A root canal is as painless as getting a filling.

Getting a Root Canal

If your dentist advises a root canal, it is best to have the procedure performed as soon as possible because you don’t want the infection to spread to nearby areas. The treatment involves the following:

  • A local anesthetic is sometimes used to numb the area around the tooth.
  • The problem tooth is separated from other teeth with a small sheet of rubber on a metal frame.
  • An access hole is drilled into the tooth to allow the dentist to perform the procedure.
  • The damaged pulp and nerve from the tooth are removed and the tooth is cleaned of any remaining decay or infection.
  • The interior of the tooth is replaced with a filling and the tooth is sealed with a crown.
  • In cases of extreme infection, a temporary filling may be placed on the tooth to allow a few days for healing before a permanent crown is secured into place.


After the procedure, you may be numb for a few hours until the anesthetic wears off. If you experience any post-root canal pain, simply take an over-the-counter pain medication. Brush and floss your teeth as usual, and follow any instructions about follow-up appointments. You should be able to return to your regular activities the very next day.


Because a root canal is usually a necessary medical procedure, many insurance providers cover the cost, but this varies by your level of coverage and particular case. Ask your dentist about affordable dental care options, as well as specialists in endodontics in [GEIOD] who accept your coverage or allow for financing.
