Root canals are a procedure performed to save teeth and to relieve or prevent tooth pain.
The procedure is painless after the tooth becomes completely numb from the anesthetic. Minor vibration or pressure sensations may be felt, similar to dental filling procedures. If any sensations of pain are felt during the root canal procedure, additional anesthetic will be administered.
