Rooting out a Myth

Root canals have gotten a bad reputation. One of the most frequent questions we’re asked is, “Do root canals hurt?” We want to address this legitimate concern here.

Myth: Root canal treatment is incredibly painful.

Fact: The pain of living with a rotten, infected tooth is much more intense than anything you’ll feel during a root canal. In fact, the process is virtually pain-free since dentists use anesthesia. Most people compare the feeling to getting a filling.
