Are There Any Side Effects to a Root Canal Treatment?

For a lot of people going in for a root canal treatment in Newmarket anytime soon, there are perhaps a lot of questions doing the rounds right now. If you are one of those people, then you are probably  trying to gather as much information as you can about the side effects of a root canal therapy, and what to expect before and after the treatment. Rest assured, your dentist in Newmarket is always there to help cope with the minimal after affects.

As far as the root canal treatment in Newmarket is concerned, be rest assured that only an experienced and well trained endo-dontist can successfully pull off the complex treatment. Other questions you might have could revolve around how exactly your endangered tooth, with an infected pulp, will be saved by the endodontist and whether the root canal treatment can possibly have its own complications. While having good oral health is preferred in any case, there are some things that you could be aware of to ensure you are well informed about your decision. Here are some of the side effects you could experience after a root canal treatment in Newmarket:


  1. Numbness around the tooth that has been operated upon, especially in the gums that surround the tooth. This numbness, however, is absolutely normal and is due to the sore tooth that is on its way to recovery. The numbness subsides within a few weeks of the root canal treatment, at the most. So, you can cope with it by getting help from your dentist.


  1. In some cases, pain can recur after the treatment. In such a case, do not panic and just visit your endodontist as soon as possible. In any case, you will have to visit your dentist for a routine check up after your root canal treatment in Newmarket. But if the pain is accompanied with swelling, make sure you get an appointment with your dentist on priority.
