Root canals generally take one to two appointments, but afterwards, with excellent hygiene, many people don’t need additional endodontic treatment.

Do I Need a Root Canal? | Bel-Nor Endodontics
Tooth pain can be caused by a variety of things and doesn’t necessarily mean that you need a root canal. But, there are certain symptoms that could point to you needing root canal treatment:
- Extreme sensitivity to hot or cold food or drink
- An ongoing toothache that is triggered long after hot or cold temperatures have been removed
- A Dark tooth, which indicates inflamed pulp/ruptured blood vessels
- A small bump, not unlike the appearance of a pimple, along the gums, near the affected area
- Extreme gum tenderness or swelling
Root Canal Therapy, Bel-Nor
The process of getting root canal therapy is a standard procedure and similar to having a tooth filled. During your appointment, the dentist will numb you with an anesthetic to make sure that you’re comfortable during the procedure. Then, utilizing special tools, the dentist will cut open the top of the injured tooth, remove the infected soft tissue, and clean the area. After disinfecting the site, the tooth will be sealed to prevent further infection, and topped with a crown which protects the tooth below.
