At Baldwinsville Gentle Dentistry, we will do everything we can to save our patients’ teeth. When there is no other option, we will suggest a root canal as the last resort to save your teeth. Many times when a patient hears they need a root canal, a certain sense of panic begins to set in. Root canals get a bad reputation. Thanks to movies, television shows, and popular culture, root canals are often depicted as extremely uncomfortable, which leaves patients terrified when this tooth-saving treatment is recommended. While a root canal is a more involved procedure, it really is no more difficult than a dental cleaning or filling.
We know that root canals are at the bottom of the list of things people would choose to do with their time. They get a bad rap for being painful and are regarded as something to be avoided at all costs. On the other hand, they perform a very important duty in that they can save your teeth.
