28 Jul Root Canal!? Sounds painful
Just hearing the words, “Root canal” invokes fear in the minds of many patients. This bad rap is very much unwarranted. With today’s modern methods of making teeth profoundly numb, quite the opposite is true – a patient can arrive in a state of severe pain and be comfortable within minutes. In other cases, the nerve of the tooth has already died. No, there is not much to feel when the root canal is being performed, cleansing out dead material and bacteria from the center of the tooth. Dentists who perform root canals often comment that their patients keep falling asleep during the procedure! A root canal lets you keep your own tooth, and can certainly resolve dental pain!
