FAQ

ARE ROOT CANALS ALWAYS NEEDED WHEN THERE IS A TOOTH ACHE?

No, only endodontics will be performed when the nerve of the tooth is affected. Through clinical examination, radiological examination and sensitivity tests performed by the specialist, the origin of this pain will be identified in order to determine the most appropriate treatment.

DOES ROOT CANAL TREATMENT HURT?

Thanks to local anesthesia, endodontic treatment is completely painless, in addition, at Clínica Blasi we use the most current technologies to shorten the treatment time.

DO I HAVE TO TAKE MEDICATION BEFORE ENDODONTICS?

You should not take any previous medication, unless the doctor tells you otherwise.

IS IT NORMAL THAT A TOOTH HURTS AFTER ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?

After the treatment of the canals, there may be sensitivity to chewing, especially in cases in which there was pain or previous infection. With the use of medications indicated by our specialist they usually remit quickly.

EMERGENCY CARE

In cases where the infection has affected the bone surrounding the root of the treated tooth, there may be inflammation and pain. These symptoms remit with the appropriate treatment.
