Is Root Canal Treatment Really Painful?
If you need a root canal to save your tooth then you probably believe that you will require a lot of painful treatment... Wrong!
There is a misconception that root canal treatment is painful, takes many different trips to the dentist and costs a fortune.
However, modern dentistry means that is not usually the case and nowadays most root canal treatments are pain free.
Of course, in some rare cases when the tooth is severely inflamed, it may take some specialist tools and techniques to make the tooth comfortable to treat but that is easily achievable and something we at Apex Dental specialize in.
We have all the experience, equipment, time and patience required to perform root canal treatments in a pleasant and comfortable environment and we have a success rate of over 95 percent in primary cases.
Although most dentists can carry out this treatment, there are many factors that determine a successful outcome in root canal therapy and it is for that reason that your dentist may wish to refer you to an endodontist to give you the best chance of saving and keeping your tooth.
At Apex Dental we aim to alleviate all your concerns about the treatment and we will sit with you for as long as it takes, answering as many questions as you have until you are completely at ease with your scheduled treatment.
Increasingly advanced root canal techniques ensure that we are able to achieve great success in less time due to the advancement of root canal files, magnification, 3D imaging, and ultrasonic cleaning techniques and by staying abreast of the latest advances in the field of root canals, we continue to achieve a high success rate and, more importantly, happy patients - which is our overwhelming goal.
