Is root canal treatment painful?

A root canal procedure sounds terrifying but with today's new materials and technology, it's normally not far more different than having a deep filling. There's little to no pain because your dentist will use local anesthesia to numb your tooth and gums so you're comfortable during the procedure.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
