The current endodontic treatment can be virtually pain free during the procedure, but the patient still may experience some pain after the appointment. although some patients experience mild to moderate pain after endodontic treatment, a few experience what is now commonly referred to as a flare-up or a post-operative problem requiring an unscheduled visit with unplanned treatment to manage patients’ symptoms.
