Historically, root canal treatments were renowned for being painful. However, with modern dental techniques and the use of local anaesthetic, a root canal treatment is no more uncomfortable than having a filling. The pain of an infected tooth is far greater than the discomfort of the treatment.
The treatment is usually highly successful, and if the teeth are looked after, can last a lifetime. As with all dental procedures, your personal oral hygiene routine and lifestyle habits will determine how long the results last.
You should avoid eating and biting hard foods in the days after treatment. The restored tooth is likely to be sensitive in the days after the treatment, and any discomfort can be treated with over-the-counter painkillers like ibuprofen or paracetamol.
