We all know that a root canal is done to an infected tooth, and the Endodontists are dentists who are specialists to do a root canal treatment. The pulp under the enamel holds the nerves and blood vessels; and when this pulp becomes infected or inflamed, you will have to treat it. The reason for this infection could be anything such as
- Tooth decay
- A crack in the tooth
- A poorly placed crown, etc.
And if you do not treat this infection at the right time, chances are it may get worse. And you may end up having your tooth removed or going through surgery.
Here are some myths about root canal treatment that may be stopping you from having it done.
It Is A Painful Procedure
You will not feel anything during a root canal treatment. On the other hand, you will feel relieved from the pain you’ve already been having as your Endodontist will remove the infected pulp.
Need To Do Too Many Visits
It may look like that a tooth extraction will be quick, in and out one-time visit, but that is not true. Diagnosis, extraction, post-extraction checkup, and implant placement may end up with several visits and, in some cases, a lot of money. But a root canal treatment may only require one to two visits, but if your condition is bad, your doctor will ask you to come in for some extra visits.
Root Canal Will Make Your Tooth Useless
The purpose of a root canal treatment is to make sure the tooth’s infected pulp is removed and the area is cleaned. This will help you to use your teeth as usual and will not make them useless.
