You’ve probably heard someone say they’d rather do anything other than getting a root canal. Just the thought of going through this procedure may make you anxious, or even fearful. But getting it isn’t anywhere near as bad as you think it might be. It’s a fast, painless and effective method of saving your teeth. Here’s some information to put your mind at ease.
A long time ago a root canal would be considered a painful procedure. But that’s not the case anymore. Advances in technology, as well as sedation, have made it no more painful than getting a filling. Getting it can actually relieve pain associated with damaged tissue.
- It Won’t Make You Sick
Many people are under the impression that you’ll be at a higher risk of developing an illness if you get a root canal. That’s simply not true. In fact, this myth, based on faulty research, has actually been around for nearly 100 years. There is absolutely no viable scientific evidence linking root canals with illness.
It’s Better Than Having a Tooth Pulled
A root canal is designed to save teeth that have suffered damage. It’s always better to have your natural teeth whenever possible. A tooth saved by it has a great chance of lasting a lifetime.
