Can I go back to work after a Root Canal? Will I have pain after a Root Canal?

Yes and maybe.

After a Root Canal, expect some tenderness on the tooth for the first couple of weeks, the gum might be sore for a few days as well. That being said, except in rare cases, you should not be having severe non bearable pain.

Unless you suffered from a severe infection, in most cases, you can go back to your normal life as soon as the numbing wears off. Depending on the severity of the infection/inflammation, symptoms will start improving starting day 1.


If a crown is required after the Root Canal, we recommend that you stick to a soft food diet on that side to protect the tooth until the crown is placed.
