Root canal

Understanding the root canal and its importance will help us to understand how to take care of your teeth after a root canal. The gums and jaw are connected to the root of the tooth. Because of infection or injury, you may have an abscess (pocket of infection around the root of your tooth). This may lead to tooth decay that may reach to the pulp of the tooth

Root canal is the process where the dentist cleans out the infected area and do a special filling to seal the canal.


What to expect immediately after a root canal?

Once the Root canal is over your dentist will send you home with instructions for pain management and tips as to how to care for your tooth while recovering from treatment

During the Root canal treatment usually, a dentist may use some medication to numb your mouth. Once the effect of this medication is over you may feel some tenderness in the area for a few days and little mild soreness in your jaw.


Usually, these symptoms are temporary and it can be managed by painkillers

You may feel a small difference between the treated teeth and the normal teeth for some time but you should contact your dentist immediately if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Severe pain lasting more than a few days
