Root Canal Treatments Can Actually Relieve Pain
You read the above correctly – a root canal treatment is sometimes the best treatment for a painful condition. Root canal treatment is performed when a tooth is infected. If the infection is allowed to fester, the patient could lose the tooth. Even more serious is that the infection may travel throughout the body, posing a threat to the patient’s general health. So a root canal treatment not only helps stop the pain of infection but can save your tooth as well.
Contrary to popular belief, modern root canal treatments are usually not accompanied by tremendous pain. Instead, anesthetic is used to keep you comfortable.
