If necessary, your tooth will also be fitted with a dental crown to strengthen it and prevent further fracturing.

Fast recovery is normal after a root canal. Most patients go back to their normal routine or work right away. Expect a little sensitivity from inflamed tissues surrounding the tooth for a few days.
