Is root canal worse than getting a tattoo? During and post procedure? And how long does a rct last?

Is root canal worse than getting a tattoo? During and post procedure? And how long does a rct last?

Not even close!: The only time a root canal is "bad" is when the treatment is delayed and the tooth becomes infected/abscessed. So don't wait. Otherwise, root canal therapy is no worse than a "filling" procedure. Couple of injections for numbing, maybe a third if already infected and"hot." tattoo is thousands of injections! Ouch!

Does your face get swollen after a root canal? If so, how long does it last? Her picture day is 2 days after. Will it be gone by then? Thank you!

Not too often: One of the reasons for a root canal is an infected tooth. While the infection starts inside the tooth, abscesses are by definition 'outside' the tooth. The root canal treats the source, but sometimes the abscess can still progress in size resulting in visible swelling. If concerned, seek follow-up evaluation from your dentist. An antibiotic might help.

It all depends: Swelling after a root canal should be a very rare occurence, and should be monitored very cosely. Antibiotics can be helpful in reducing the swelling, but 3-7 days can be required.

Request that you be monitored by your dentist that did the root canal or see an endodontist.
