Will a root canal hurt?
Modern Root Canals Are More Comfortable & Effective
Local anesthesia is applied to numb the treatment area and sedation can be provided to ensure you remain relaxed. Many patients agree that a root canal is no more painful than a filling.
Prevent ExtractionSince infection is removed and the tooth structure can be repaired with a dental crown, a root canal can usually prevent extraction. This can save you money in the long run and provide peace of mind.
