Do root canals hurt?

Dentist Colorado SpringsIt is a myth and misconception that root canals are painful and stressful. In fact, 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.

Prior to the root canal therapy, Colorado Springs patients report tremendous pain and stress caused by the tooth infection. If you are suffering from tooth pain, we can relieve your discomfort at Springs Family Dental.

Modern Advances Make All the Difference

Thanks to modern local anesthetics, root canals can be a nearly painless procedure. Root canals tend to get a bad rap as the tooth needing treatment is generally very painful; however, the surgery itself doesn't usually cause pain. Once the tooth is numb, most patients don't feel a thing! 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.
