Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime. Years ago, diseased or injured teeth were usually pulled out. But today, a tooth can often be saved through Root canal treatment.
Tooth is composed of three layers.
Enamel being the outer layer of tooth is extremely hard- in-fact, it's the hardest substance in the human body.
Dentin is the second and the middle layer of the tooth. The tooth sensitivity is because of the dentinal tubules located in dentin.
Pulp is the centre layer of the tooth. It contains the blood and nerve supply of the tooth.
Once the tooth decay penetrate through enamel, the dentin and then to the pulp, root canal treatment will be necessary.

What Happens if a Root canal treatment is not done?
If a root canal treatment is not done on time, pain and swelling can occur. Even if there is no pain, bacteria can damage the bone that holds the tooth in the jaw. Without treatment, the tooth may have to be removed.
If the tooth is removed and not replaced, the teeth around it may shift.

People think that root canal treatment is painful. But that's just one of the myths about root canal treatments.
It's important to remember that the goal of root canal treatment isn't to cause you pain but it's to relieve it.
During the root canal procedure your tooth is numbed with local anaesthesia before starting the procedure to make root canal completely painless.
so to answer your question , NO the root canal treatments are not painful anymore.
The average root canal treatment is of 30 to 60 minutes . More complex cases may take upto 90 minutes . A root canal typically requires one or two appointments to complete.
A tooth becomes fragile after root canal treatment due to infection and cavity. Dental Crown not only protects the tooth but it strengthens it as well.
Crown also prevents coronal leakage.
If the filling that seals in the biocompatible tooth root material develops a leak, infection can get in and ruin the root canal.
Crowns are the best restoration to prevent this type of potential damage.
Hence it is highly advisable to get a dental crown after the root canal treatment.
