The Procedure

Whether you are having root canal therapy or surgery, you shall receive local anesthetics by injection (usually 2% Lidocaine) to affected areas first for pain control. Depending on the person, there is a wait of 10 to 20 minutes for freezing to take effect. After which, endodontic procedure may begin.

(See section on What is Root Canal?)

Length of procedure varies depending on tooth (incisor vs. molar), number of canals, or type (therapy vs. surgery) but usually can be completed within one hour. Exceptions include more complicated cases where additional appointment(s) are required.
