Why You Shouldn’t Be Scared of a Root Canal, Webster, New York

Endodontic therapy or root canal therapy is a dental procedure that is feared by many due to some outdated misconceptions. Modern dentistry has paved the way to more advanced procedures that have made the treatment significantly less painful today.

Katz Family Dentistry has been providing compassionate and dependable dental services in Webster, NY. They provide each patient with a pleasant and comfortable experience with each dental appointment. Below are a few reasons why you shouldn’t fear going to the dentist for a root canal:

  • Virtually Painless: Before beginning the procedure, your dentist will administer an anesthetic that will numb the affected area so that you won’t feel a thing. Pain after the procedure does not last long and can easily be managed by some over-the-counter pain relievers.
  • root canalAlleviates Existing Pain & Discomfort: An infection is far more painful than the actual treatment. If not properly attended to, a cavity can cause severe and recurring pain or discomfort that is significantly worse than any pain you’ll feel during a root canal procedure. Taking antibiotics may get rid of weaker bacteria, but it exposes you to a reinfection that could be much worse. The best way to permanently get rid of the pain is by having the procedure done once and for all.
  • It’s a Quick & Easy Procedure: A root canal is a quick and easy procedure. Barring any unforeseen complications, recovery takes only a couple of days. You can immediately go back to your old routine without skipping a beat. Your dentist should be able to provide you with a prescription to help you with post-procedure pain if there are any.

Dental procedures are far more advanced and less painful than what they used to be back in the day, so you shouldn’t psych yourself up before your appointment. If you’re ready to undergo a root canal, get in touch with Katz Family Dentistry by calling (585) 671-2340 today.
