Would my front tooth Root Canal be painful ? It got chipped off around 6 years back which is a long time. I do have a pain in the adjacent tooth too.
Should be fine: As with all dental procedures, there is a fear of the unknown. In reality, you will be given an anesthetic that should make the treatment totally painless. The pain in the adjacent tooth can be referred from the one that needs root canal therapy. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
