The myth about root canal therapy being painful likely began back in the time when anesthetics were just being introduced to dental care. Remember, at one time the barber was the same person who would care for people’s teeth! Today, surveys show that six out of seven people who say that root canal therapy is painful have never had this procedure done.
Root canal therapy performed at Dentistry on 10 incorporates effective numbing medication as well as precision techniques that lead to a comfortable, efficient procedure. During treatment, most patients feel nothing more than a little pressure, very similar to tooth repair with a dental filling. After root canal therapy, there is only a slight chance for soreness to occur.
Why extraction is not the better option
In recent decades, there has been a movement in which patients question extraction as a way to remove infection. The removal of an infected tooth will, of course, eliminate the source of infection. It does not, however, facilitate the goal of dentistry, which is to preserve natural teeth. A consideration that must be made when thinking about extraction is how the missing tooth will be replaced. The root canal technique used today has a high success rate for long-term function.
