Abstract

Pain management is the key to providing successful root canal therapy. All patients hope for a painless procedure and look forward to being free of their symptoms when treatment is complete. However, managing pain throughout endodontic therapy can be challenging and improving awareness of various analgesic techniques can make a significant difference to both patient and practitioner. This article should provide some insight into these methods and use current literature to discuss how they can be delivered in a clinical setting. By doing so, practitioners can utilize these techniques to make endodontic treatment a more comfortable procedure.
