Debunking Common Myths About Root CanalsIf you are unfamiliar with the root canal procedure, it would be understandable to be a little wary of the treatment. This is not forgetting the fact that there are so many misconceptions about the same.

Will the pain be too much, you may ask?

Decades ago, you would have been justified to think that the pain will be too much. However, with the present technology and the use of anesthetics, you are assured of a painless process. Doctors use anesthesia to numb the nerves in the region before the procedure. In other words, you are guaranteed that the process will be comfortable and trouble-free. In an actual sense, the root canal is what relieves the pain and discomfort that is caused by an infected tooth.

Does a root canal mean that the tooth will be removed?

The essence of a root canal treatment is to salvage the tooth and not to remove it. The canal is systematically cleaned and formed on the inside by removing nerve tissues and pulp that have been eaten away by the bacteria and then sealing off to prevent any further infections. In fact, root canal treatment is one of the safest and most harmless means of treating a tooth that is infected.

Root canal versus extraction

Most people think that the extraction of the teeth is better than a root canal procedure. Let us demystify this here and now. It is true that tooth extraction may be of greater advantage in some vases. However, what if you want to retain your natural teeth? Root canal not only saves your natural teeth but it also protects the teeth from any further damage in the future. And yes, a root canal offers a lasting result as well. The treated tooth will not only last for many years but you will also not need extraction in the near future. Work with us today. We have the best root canal dentists.
