MYTHS ABOUT ROOT CANAL TREATMENT


Root canal treatment is a procedure to relieve pain within the tooth. Root canal treatment done appropriately is a pain free procedure. It is our endeavour to challenge the notion of pain during dental treatment. Local anesthetic is used for all root canal treatments and the procedure can be as comfortable as a visit to the salon.

Root canal treatment is a rational, scientific, historically and clinically proven procedure and its safety is well documented over the years. Please find a video link to the American Association of Endodontist (AAE) website that explains the same.

Keeping your natural teeth for as long as possible is very important for proper eating and chewing functions. Although there are several options available for replacing missing teeth, these alternatives are artificial and expensive replacements. Endodontic treatment, along with appropriate restoration, is a cost-effective way to treat infected teeth and is usually less expensive than extraction and prosthetic replacement.
