Will I be able to eat after my Root Canal?
Yes! You can eat and drink normally after a root canal treatment once the anesthesia wears off. You may have slight tenderness or tingling in the area for a little bit and may prefer to eat on the other side of your mouth for a day but that is nothing to be worried about. For the most part though, you can eat and drink normally!
Can I workout?
Yes! You can totally exercise and conduct your normal day to day activities without a hitch!
Will it be painful?
Most root canals are necessary because there is infection in the pulp or root of the tooth. This is what causes the initial pain. But once anesthesia is administered, you will be completely out of pain! Most patients report little to zero pain after the procedure. You might have slight uncomfortability from having your mouth open or the surrounding tissue being touched or pressure but usually and advil will do the trick.
All in all, a root canal treatment is not really a hassle at all! Most pain associated was original pain from the infection, but once removed, you will be good to go! Call Dr. George Shinn at Endo LA located in Los Angeles, California at (310) 649-3636 for any questions or concerns you might still have, or to schedule your own root canal!
