Root Canal Therapy

Do root canals really hurt?

No. Root canals, just like fillings, crowns, implants, or most other dental procedures are done while under local anesthetic. Dr David Stern will make sure that you are completely numb before he starts any treatment. Root canals have a bad reputation, primarily due to the pain that usually occurs BEFORE the treatment is completed. Many times teeth that are in pain need root canal treatment and will usually fill much better after treatment is completed.

If you are in pain or think you need a root canal, call our office today 410-692-6132 to schedule an appointment with Dr David Stern.
