Usually painless: You never hear about the "good" root canals, as they don't make good stories. However, they probably account for the majority of cases. Often times people have little or no post-op discomfort, and all the worry was for nothing. Also, it's not uncommon for patients to doze off during a root canal procedure!
A 16-year-old member asked:

Usually minimal pain: Most root canal treatments go well with little or no pain during or after the procedure. There are certainly exceptions to the rule, however, and unfortunately, these are usually what people talk and hear about. Fortunately, these exceptions truly are few and far between.
A 42-year-old male asked:

Probably: Check with obgyn, as every situation is different. In general, major essential dental work should be completed before planned medical procedures as to not leave problems unaddressed that could develop into pain and/or infection that could affect both mother and child. Elective dental work should be left for after the 1st trimester. Emergencies, including root canals, should be dealt with quickly, .

Thx! Just switched from Amoxicillin to Clindamycin which brought down fever/pain, but wears off after 3-4hrs. We'll see how soon it settles.

Thx for explaining! Endo retreated @3rd visit causing major relapse, which seems under control for now. Hope the tooth can be filled soon.
