Root Canal Pain is a Myth – Get Care Now from Endodontics in Dunwoody Patients Trust

dca-blog-172-mix-of-leftover-articles_1200x630

If you assume that tooth extraction is the most practical and affordable dental care option for dealing with a badly damaged tooth, you might miss a great opportunity to save your tooth while ending your pain. Root canals save about 17 million teeth each year, and they’re more affordable than you might think. Root canal therapy is simple and only involves a few steps. First, the diseased pulp is removed from the tooth. Next, the tooth’s roots are cleaned and hollowed out. Finally, the roots are filled with a flexible material, and the tooth is prepared for a crown.

4 Signs You May Need a Root Canal

Your tooth can become diseased from faulty or leaking restorations, tooth decay, direct injury, or fractures. Once the tooth’s pulp is affected, it begins to die. This causes significant pain and other symptoms. The following four signs are indications that root canal therapy may be needed:

  • Pain that may be mild or severe
  • Dark tooth discoloration indicating decay
  • Swelling and soreness in the gums surrounding the tooth
  • Visible signs of infection on a dental X-ray

Worried about Root Canal Pain?

Root canal procedures are no more painful than getting a filling. With today’s modern anesthetic options and dentists who are more aware of patient anxiety, there is no reason to fear getting a root canal. Don’t let the myth of root canal pain scare you away; they are an effective and affordable dental care option that endodontics in Atlanta patients trust to restore normal function and relieve pain.
