Say Goodbye to Gossip

Many of your friends or family member may have incorrectly informed you that a root canal is not a comfortable treatment. Unfortunately for you, they have filled your mind with information that may cause you to hesitate to treat your infected tooth. It is important to keep in mind that most people associate discomfort with root canals because an infected tooth commonly includes inflammation and pain.

The First Thing We Do

The very first thing we do when you visit us for a root canal treatment is help you get comfortable. We will use local anesthetic to numb the tissues that surround your infected tooth as well as the tooth itself. Once we have determined that your tissues are numb, we can move forward with treatment.
