Nobody wants to come see me for the dreaded root canal, but it's always interesting to me because once patients have that root canal, they've typically been so uncomfortable or in pain that they're extremely appreciative they had it done. I think patients are always commenting how surprised they are at how easy the procedure is. It's actually pretty boring more than anything else once we get started. So I think patients, again, I think it has a undeserved reputation of being a miserable or difficult appointment, because it is actually pretty straightforward, and the, again, the benefit that we see immediately from patients just on their face to relieve pain, to get them out of pain, to get them back to their normal routine, is pretty powerful, so. And the ability to save teeth a lot of times, by doing a root canal that would otherwise need to have much more extensive or aggressive treatment in terms of extraction and implants and treatment that works well, but if always our goal is to maintain a patient's existing tooth structure, if we can, so root canals offer us that option that tends to work out very well for a lot of patients.

The last thing we want is to see a patient in pain. If your teeth are hurting you, that means something is wrong. This isn’t a time to put off getting help. The sooner you get treated, the faster you can feel normal again.
Root canal procedures are an essential part of our restorative dentistry. During this process, we:
