Dispelling the Myths Of Root Canal Treatment

Tooth Extraction

Most people associate root canal treatment with pain, but advances in modern dentistry makes the procedure painless. In fact, the root canal procedure actually ends the tooth pain!

Your dentist can advise you on root canal therapy and dispel some of the myths surrounding it.

Key takeaways:

  • Although a root canal makes a tooth less sensitive to hot and cold foods, it can still be susceptible to pain.
  • Root canal treatment is aimed at saving teeth, and the tooth and its roots are not removed.
  • Maintain regular dentist appointments, as a lack of pain does not necessarily mean a tooth does not require a root canal.

“When people are told that they need a root canal treatment, they usually think about pain. However, the pain they feel is caused by an infection in the tooth, not by root canal treatment. A root canal is done to eliminate that pain.”
