Root Canal Pain Management

by Dr. Fatahi, DDS

Here are 5 simple steps to follow before you have a root canal or during your root canal recovery and a few root canal symptoms or situations that can cause you to need a root canal.

1. Take your antibiotics as prescribed by your dentist.

Most teeth that require a root canal were painful to begin with. It is perfectly normal for a tooth that has had endodontic therapy to be tender for a short time after the treatment has begun throughout the root canal recovery process. If the tooth was infected and antibiotics were prescribed by your dentist, the medication takes at least 24 to 48 hours after the medication regimen has begun.
