Root canal

I went to a dentist about 2 weeks ago n she said I needed a root canal. So I went it got it done yesterday. This was my 1st visit with this dentist and just agrees bc u was in pain. But now I'm regretting it bc it hurts n maybe I should have gotten another opinion. Bad decision..

  • You will be uncomfortable for a day or so. I've had a few done & once the pain of the procedure is gone, you will have a tooth you won't need to worry about bothering you again. Take your pain meds & try to hang in there.

  • It will hurt for a couple days to a week for most people.
    It never hurts to get a second opinion.

  • No matter what dentist does the root canal it will hurt later on. But its not a lifetime of pain to have to look forward to.

  • Tooth pain is the worst. But once the initial discomfort from the procedure wears off in a few days, you'll be glad you had it done.
