Find out why a root canal is really nothing to be worried about.
Has your Dentist, Dr. Alfred Huber at the Reserve Dental Group, told you that you need a root canal? For some, those two words are enough to stir panic. But we are here to tell you that a root canal is really nothing to be scared of. Knowledge is power! Find out more about your upcoming procedure so you can feel more at ease.
What is the purpose of a root canal?
This endodontic treatment is designed to treat problems that are affecting the dental pulp, or inside of the tooth. The dental pulp is the feeling part of the tooth, which contains nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues. However, this structure is not required for your tooth to remain healthy. When the pulp becomes inflamed or infected this often causes severe pain. Damage to the pulp can occur due to infection, decay or injury. When this happens your Boca Raton, FL will recommend root canal treatment.
I’m scared of my upcoming root canal. What should I know about this procedure?
We can assure you that a root canal is nothing to fear. A root canal might seem invasive, but it’s really no more aggressive than having a tooth filled.
Many patients also come to us in serious pain and discomfort because of infection or decay. These patients are desperately looking for relief. Luckily, that’s exactly what a root canal provides. In fact, after the procedure is over many people report feeling instant relief from their pain.
And if you still aren’t convinced, your Dentist, at the Reserve Dental Group in Boca Raton, FL will also administer local anesthesia to the treatment area prior to your root canal. This ensures that the area is numb during your procedure and that you won’t experience any pain.
If you find that you still have questions or concerns about getting a root canal, know that your Boca Raton dentist Dr. Huber wants to make you feel as comfortable as possible. We would be happy to address any of your questions or worries. Call Reserve Dental Group, at 561-852-7773 today!
