  1. During the time of extreme tooth pain, the nerve of the tooth is likely dying. Once the nerve has completed died, the pain can sometimes subside. Even though the pain is no longer present, the disease process still exists and the infection needs to be removed.
  2. In some cases, antibiotics may control the symptoms related to tooth infection. An antibiotic will provide temporary relief, therefore it is advised to treat the affected tooth with either endodontic therapy or extraction.

Everyone is different in terms of their experience and pain tolerance. A mild discomfort is to be expected for 2-3 days after. This discomfort, or soreness, is found with the tooth, the gums, TMJ, and muscles of the jaws. If able to do so, taking over the counter pain relievers before the procedure may help to reduce severity of post-operative discomfort. If significant pain persists following endodontic care, please call our office for further advice and instructions on how to care for your tooth.

Once the root canal procedure is completed, either a temporary or permanent filling will be placed in the tooth. It is very important that you return to your dentist’s office to have a permanent restoration placed. The permanent restoration may be either a final filling or a crown, or both. Our recommendation is to have this final restoration completed in a timely manner (within 30-60 days) to protect the tooth and root canal treatment. If the restorative care is delayed, this may result in failure of the endodontic therapy.
