23 Aug Where Do You Go for a Root Canal?
Routine dental services are a key part of keeping your mouth in good condition, but then there’s also the types of intervention dental work that you need when a dental problem has already emerged – and those kinds of care are important!
A root canal is one of those services. What happens is the root of the tooth gets infected, and the dentist has to go in and drill it out. When this happens, there’s a time constraint – you can’t just let this kind of thing go on, because it will get worse and can lead to secondary health problems.
There’s been a lot of myth built up about root canals – that they’re extremely painful and take hours and hours to do. Much of that is now untrue, even if it was true in the traditional days of conventional drilling dentistry. Nowadays, we have much more painkillers and anesthesia and other tools at our disposal to make root canals easier and more pain-free.
However, unlike a routine filling, root canals often will take more than one session to perform. It’s a little more in-depth in the sense that the dentist has to access the root and deal with the entire infection. If the office isn’t really set up to accommodate the patient, the process can take even longer. Maybe a dentist is juggling three different patients and trying to get short-staffing systems to take care of the busywork. That can leave you in the chair even longer!
Root canals, quite simply, take work. So in the past, root canals were uncomfortable, inconvenient and sometimes scary to patients.
