Why has my general dentist referred me to you? Why can't he/she perform the root canal in their office?
My tooth doesn't hurt but I've been informed by my dentist that I need a root canal. Do I really need one?
Why do you require a referral from my dentist?
My dentist said that I need a root canal with post and core build-up. What is that?
My dentist said that I need a root canal with a post space. What is that?
My tooth already has a crown. Do I need a new crown after my root canal treatment?
I've had a root canal before and my dentist informed me that I need a retreatment. How come I'm having problems with this tooth again and can it be retreated?
I've heard horror stories about root canals. I've never had one before. What can I expect?
After your root canal is complete, your tooth may feel a bit achy and tender. This discomfort can be managed with Advil or Tylenol and should subside in two days after treatment. The root canal experience is comparable to having a filling placed in your dental office. Dr. Sabourin has a gentle touch and will make sure you are as comfortable as possible before, during and after your treatment.
