More pain before root canal, less to gain from anesthesia
from Medical News Today
Before starting any root canal procedure, dental surgeons reach for a local anesthetic. However, if the patient has a severe toothache, the standard dose may not be enough to keep the pain at bay during the surgery. Figuring out just how much the patient's tooth hurts when he walks through the door may be key to a painless root canal.
