Correcting Root Canal Myths

Posted on 6/8/2020 by Dr Jonathan Ford
A lot of people have the belief that they are going to be in massive amounts of pain during and after root canal treatment. This is inaccurate far more often than not. Most people come in to us to have a root canal because they are already in pain, and the relief that we are able to provide is a tremendous relief to most.

There is also the belief that you should simply have the tooth extracted, as it would be easier. This is also inaccurate. Getting a tooth extracted from inside your mouth is very traumatic to the tissues. It can even go so far as to break the socket of your tooth, leaving you in pain longer than a root canal. A root canal is very easy on your tissues overall, and leaves you with far less recovery than an extraction would.

Finally, if you have ever heard that a root canal can make you sick, then this is a myth you need to know isn't accurate. Having a root canal removes the bacteria from your mouth. If you happen to get sick around a root canal, it is because the bacteria were there in the first place. The tooth that was infected, that got treated for the root canal, presented infection to your body. It is this infection that got you sick, not having the root canal.

If you need a root canal, give us a call at the (714) 409-6161. We will help you get relief from whatever ails your tooth, and allow your tooth to be restored to its former glory. Give us a call today, and let us help you get those root canal myths out of your mind, and replace it with a positive experience.
