If that sounds like you, keep reading to find out what to expect and why this treatment is not as bad as its reputation, and then get in touch ASAP to get some relief!
Dental Infections & Inflammations Are Painful
When the pulp inside your tooth–the place where your nerves are housed–has become inflamed, that will be a real pain in the, well, mouth.
One of your best options at this juncture is root canal therapy, but you may have been prejudiced by what you have heard about this procedure and it could be that you are afraid that it will hurt worse than what you already have to deal with. Trust us, that just is not the case.
Modern Dentistry Makes It Easy
In light of recent developments, odds are good that your toothache is keeping you from eating, drinking, and concentrating on your daily activities. Most likely, all you can think about is the never-ending pain.
Here’s the deal: the root canal is an opening that runs through the root of your tooth. This opening is how blood vessels and nerves reach the pulp chamber at the center of each tooth.
Tooth decay can eat away at the outside of your tooth for a long time. You may not feel it and you may not notice it until that infection reaches the innermost parts of your tooth.
It’s only when your pulp becomes inflamed that you will feel that painful toothache.
Bad breath, a foul taste inside your mouth, fever, swollen gums, sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks are all part of this condition. That’s why you will want to let us use our modern dental tools to turn things around for you.
Does Root Canal Therapy Hurt?
There’s a pretty big myth surrounding root canals that they are painful. That might have been true decades ago, but a lot has changed in dentistry since then. In reality, modern root canals are no more painful than getting a cavity filled. However, if anxiety is still a problem, we can provide you with dental sedation to help you relax.
