Why You Shouldn’t Fear a Root Canal
In the media, getting a root canal is akin to going through torture. Fortunately, thanks to today’s modern dental techniques and analgesics, the procedure is safe, gentle, and most patients say they didn’t feel a thing afterward.
After numbing a patient, we create a small hole in the tooth, and this allows us to reach and remove the infected pulp. We then clean the tooth, fill it with a biologically inert substance, close it, and place a restoration. Most of the time, a root canal can be completed in just one visit, and this usually results in instant relief from even the worst toothaches.
