Is there a general dental procedure more misunderstood than the root canal? With a reputation for being complicated and painful, no recommendation strikes fear into a patient’s heart like root canal therapy.
Here’s the truth, though. Dental technology has been improving constantly, and with modern techniques and a skilled dentist, root canals aren’t any more complicated or uncomfortable than a filling. They also have a high success rate and allow us to save a tooth that might otherwise have to be extracted and replaced, which in turn saves you extra hassle, discomfort, and money. We think that’s a win/win situation.
