The Truth About Root Canals

Root canals are used to treat teeth that have developed an infection or sustained damage to the dental pulp, which is the sensitive inner nerve of a tooth. The procedure involves numbing a patient, removing the pulp, and then cleaning and filling the tooth before topping it with a restoration. The actual treatment is practically painless, but the reason root canals have such a terrible reputation is because the pain from the initial dental issue often gets falsely connected to the procedure itself. In reality, most patients don’t feel a thing while in the chair and wish they contacted Dr. Pogue earlier once he has fixed their problem!
