Do root canals hurt?

It is a myth and misconception that root canals are painful and stressful. Root canals relieve the pressure and pain that makes them necessary in the first place. When a tooth is infected, Dr. Michael Terveen can remove the infected pulp and restore health and order to the tooth without needing to extract the tooth.

Before root canal therapy, Colorado Springs patients report tremendous pain and stress caused by the tooth infection. After their root canal therapy, however, our patients leave feeling pain-free.

If you are suffering from tooth pain and need a root canal in East Colorado Springs, we can relieve your discomfort at Springs Family Dental.

Modern Advances Make All the Difference

Thanks to local anesthetics available at dental offices, root canals are nearly painless. Root canals often get a bad rap as the tooth needing treatment is generally very painful. The surgery itself, however, doesn't usually cause pain. Once the tooth is numb, most patients don't feel anything! Our patients may experience a little soreness for the next few days after the surgery, but this is normal after any operation. 

If you feel severe pain or throbbing, please give our professional dental team a call at (719) 634-4805. Dr. Terveen can prescribe painkillers to help relieve any discomfort and let you go on enjoying life as usual.
