What is a root canal?

A root canal removes a damaged or infected area of a tooth without having to remove the tooth. Your dentist will remove the infected area so it does not continue to spread. You might need a root canal if you have:

  • Severe toothache pain
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
  • Darkening or discoloration of the tooth
  • Swelling and tenderness around the tooth
  • A pimple on the gums

Are root canal procedures painful?

Many patients feel little discomfort during the procedure. You might feel pressure at times but your dentist will monitor your pain closely thought the procedure to make sure you do not experience discomfort. At South Fallsburg Dental we provide the lates anesthetic options to provide optimum pain-relieving measures.

After your root canal

After a root canal, pain is usually mild. You will likely only need an over-the-counter option such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil). You should avoid chewing hard foods as well as extreme hot or cold foods. You will be able to drive and return to your normal days activities directly after a root canal.



Should I get teeth whitening kits from the store?2022-04-19T13:00:20-04:00
In-store whitening kits could help with light staining for a short period of time. Professional teeth whiteners are safe and much more effective in a brighter and longer lasting smile. Another advantage of professional teeth whitening is it is done under the supervision of a dental professional. In most cases, it is worth the extra cost for long-lasting and safe results. Teeth whitening is safe when done correctly.
