Dallas Dentist Debunks Root Canals

Dallas Dentist Debunks Root Canals

Date: 05/11/17 By: admin

May 11th is Root Canal Appreciation Day.

You may ask, why appreciate this dreaded dental procedure?
The truth is a root canal does not cause pain, it relieves it! Thanks to modern dental technologies and anesthetics, root canal treatment today is no more uncomfortable than having a filling. Most patients see their Dentist or Endodontist when they have severe toothache caused by an infection in the tooth’s pulp. An Endodonsist ( Root Canal Specialist) removes the infected pulp, carefully cleans and shapes the inside of the roots, then fills and seals the space. Afterwards, you will return to your Dentist, who will place a crown on the tooth to protect and restore it to full function. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth.
