A root canal procedure can be performed in only one dental visit. However, to maintain the health of your teeth, you will need to keep up with your regular visits as advised by your dentist.
At ICO Dental, our patients’ needs come first. That means we take extra precautions to prevent pain. A root canal procedure is not painful because your dentist will numb the area. However, if you suffer from anxiety, sedation dentistry is an option to help relax you during the treatment.
Although some people believe that root canals cause illness – this is not true. There is no evidence that shows a link between illnesses and root canal treatment.
No. The tooth is actually saved from extraction. You get to keep your natural tooth and ensure its health for years to come. Your dentist only removes the infected dental pulp while protecting the rest of your tooth.
