Root canals have a reputation. Simple at that. There’s even a saying that people use to express how bad something is: I’d rather have a root canal. That’s supposed to mean that they wish to avoid something really, really bad.
But root canals are an important part of modern dentistry, helping to save teeth and ultimately improve even poor dental health. It helps to understand exactly what is going on when a root canal is performed. Knowing what the dentist is doing may make it easier to deal with the thought of the process.
Owens Family Dentistry is committed to dental health care that serves the needs of our patients. When a root canal is necessary, we are careful to take every step to make the process as comfortable and easy as possible.
