During the root canal procedure, the endodontist numbs the quadrant of the mouth where the affected tooth is located. Most patients do not feel anything. A few patients will just feel some pressure or a slight pulling sensation. The numbness lasts for 30 to 60 minutes after the work is done. The root canal procedure removes the nerve from the tooth’s root. There will be no pain from the tooth. With a temporary crown, patients should avoid very hot, crunchy, chewy or sticky foods. Once the custom-made crown is ready, the patient returns to the office to have it cemented in place. The dentist checks the fit of the crown, and small adjustments can be made in order to ensure a comfortable fit. Root canals are highly effective, and more than 95 percent of people have a successful procedure.
