Does a root Canal hurt?

Root canals actually aren’t painful, but putting one off might be. Why?15ADD770-9C36-11DF-8091-B2517A80FA47

Root canal therapy treatments are usually performed in order to save a tooth that is infected, and about to die. Sometimes the pain in an infected tooth is so strong that patients are fearful that the treatment will cause even more pain.

It’s actually been proven that extracting a tooth would cause more pain than having a root canal in most cases. Putting off a necessary root canal can prolong your pain.  However, even the term “root canal” conjures up fright in many people. Truly a  root canal relieves more pain than it causes.  Done correctly, a root canal is often a blessing rather than a curse.
