Root canal relieves you of your pain, rather than causing it!
Are you aware that the root canal can save approximately 24 million teeth every year? This means about 24 million people are treated because of infected pulp. If the infected or damaged tooth pulp is not removed, get ready for future complications. You are likely to experience extreme pain and put the rest of your healthy teeth at risk. At last, your teeth have to be extracted if the infection spreads.
The procedure involves filling the root canal with a rubber-like material called “gutta-percha.” You can now effortlessly conduct your daily activities without the worry of any pain.
What should I expect during the root canal?
As per the American Association of Endodontists, many patients feel very less or no pain during the treatment. Before the dentist starts with the procedure, your dentist puts a numbing application to the affected area and its surrounding. After which, the treatment becomes pretty comfortable.
Experiencing mild discomfort is common and normal, suggesting you must opt for the treatment.
