Are root canals painful?  This is a common question asked by patients who have never had a root canal or who have heard this from others.  With modern technology today and local anesthesia the procedure is not painful at all.  In fact, the root canal procedure is what fixes the pain and saves the tooth from becoming more infected.  Don't hesitate to call us if you have more questions about root canals.
