It is highly likely that reading about root canals is not on your list of fun things to do. So we are filling you in on two things we think you do want to read about: how to avoid one, and if you need one, why you shouldn’t worry about the process.
When the nerves within a tooth’s root have been damaged by either trauma or decay, a root canal is required. To do this, the damaged tooth would be treated in almost the same manner as a filling, except the treatment would extend to the roots of the tooth.
The procedure being painful is the biggest misconception about the treatment. In truth, the real pain comes from ignoring an aching tooth for so long that the trauma or decay progresses and becomes overwhelming. To avoid this, seek regular dental visits and early treatment when experiencing tooth discomfort.
