Dr. Schmoldt is highly trained in modern techniques and anesthetics. The vast majority of his patients report that they were comfortable throughout the entire procedure.
Some mild to moderate tenderness and sensitivity is normal and expected for the first few days after treatment, especially if there was pain or infection before the procedure. A very small number of cases, however, can lead to a few days of increased pain and/or swelling. Dr. Schmoldt and his staff will discuss your unique situation and what to expect and how to manage any discomfort.
Your tooth may continue to feel slightly different from your other teeth for some time after your endodontic treatment is completed. If you have severe pain, pressure or pain that lasts more than a few days, call the office at any time.
