Do root canals hurt?

The root canal treatment does not hurt.   The pain symptoms causing the need for root canal treatment can cause a very painful toothache.  Upon completion of a root canal, you will be able to use the tooth pain-free.  The use of today’s modern local anesthetics, and in some cases in-office IV sedation, will ensure you have the pain-free experience.
