During Root Canal Procedure
Root canal therapy involves removing the pulp from the tooth chamber and canals. Pensacola endodontist, Dr. Todd, will then clean the canals with a disinfecting solution. During your root canal therapy, we may provide local anesthesia or sedation to ensure your complete comfort.
What to expect after getting a Root Canal
After root canal treatment, we may place a temporary filling to protect your tooth until your restoration is complete. Your tooth may feel sensitive for the first few days. This discomfort may be relieved with over-the-counter or prescribed pain medications, as directed. Avoid chewing on the treated tooth until you have your full restoration. If a problem occurs, contact Elite Endodontics.
