Do dental procedures like fillings, crowns, and root canals hurt?

Most procedures, including root canals, can be completed with nothing more than mild discomfort, which is not the same as pain. Most of us, after all, don’t feel comfortable when someone is working in our mouths.

Our dentists make sure the areas they’re working in are thoroughly numb, which means you may feel pressure but not a sting. If you do notice any pain, simply raise your hand, but pain is unlikely.

At Callister Dental, we also rely on technologies that allow for easier and sometimes faster procedures.

Aside from anesthesia, our dentists can administer nitrous oxide, a safe gas that produces feelings of ease and relaxation. Often patients who are concerned about pain spend their time in the dental chair anxious and anticipating pain that does not come. It is rare when a patient is in pain at Callister Dental.

Our team is very experienced when it comes to patient comfort. The most likely scenario is you relaxing with one of our neck pillows and surprised that it is going so well.
