Don’t Stress. There’s No Need to Fear Root Canals.

When people hear “root canal”, they assume it’s a painful and scary procedure, however, treatment methods have drastically evolved over the years, so there really isn’t a need to be fearful.

The Positive Side of Root Canals:

  • During the procedure, the area will of course be frozen. You can also have the option of sedation if you are extra squeamish.
  • After treatment, patients will experience relief because there will no longer be pain from infected dental pulp.
  • You will still have your tooth because root canal therapy saves it.
  • If you maintain your teeth well at home as well as keep up with professional dental visits, most root canal treatments will last a lifetime. You wouldn’t have to worry about the pain coming back.
  • Your root canal may be able to be done in a day.
