Common Questions

Will the treatment be painful?

We will take every measure to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible during your procedure. If treatment is needed, we will inject a small amount of anesthesia to gently numb a concentrated area of your mouth. For most patients, the feeling of numbness usually subsides after 2-3 hours.

On very rare occasions some teeth are particularly sensitive, however, a number of techniques are available to enable even these teeth to be tackled.

I get very anxious about dental treatment, does your office offer sedation?

For those who are uncomfortable with dental procedures, our office works closely with anesthetists to provide the option of intravenous sedation. This option allows you to sleep through the procedure and avoid any anxiety or discomfort.

Your safety is our primary concern. As such, an anesthetist is present to administer this sedation and monitor you throughout the procedure. 

We also offer treatment under an oral sedative, which is a milder form of sedation.

Will I need to return to your office for follow-ups after the procedure is finished?

For certain root canal treatments, we recommend that patients return to the office one year after completion of the procedure. We will inform you if this is recommended in your case.
