Myth Vs Fact
Many people fear the words “root canal” because they believe it is a painful process. However, most of the time a root canal is recommended because someone is already suffering from a toothache caused by inflammation or infection. The truth is most patients can have a comfortable treatment experience with the help of modern techniques and anesthetics.
Patients may experience some sensitivity for the first few days after the treatment, especially if there was already pain or infection present before the root canal treatment. This can be relieved through the use of over the counter or prescription medications.
