Myth 1: Root Canal Treatment Is Painful
Most people have a notion that root canal treatment is incredibly uncomfortable. However, many of these people have never undergone the procedure themselves. Many dental services involve a little discomfort, and root canals are no exception. Nevertheless, with the help of anesthetic and sedation dentistry, few patients experience pain during the procedure. Most report that a root canal is no more uncomfortable than a filling. While root canal therapy might result in some temporary tooth sensitivity, the discomfort is undoubtedly more manageable than the pain associated with leaving the infected tooth unchecked. In almost every case, root canal treatment doesn’t cause additional pain; instead, the procedure alleviates it. Feel free to talk to our team about any further concerns or apprehension about the procedure.
