We know that patients hate hearing their dentist utter the dreaded words ‘root canal.’

But that’s often because of the myths that have been perpetuated for decades about root canal procedures.

The most common misconceptions are that they’re very painful, that it’s better to simply remove an infected tooth, and that they’re invasive and complicated.

Let’s set the record straight!

Modern root canals are simpler and more comfortable than they’ve ever been, especially when you trust a dental team like ours who puts patient comfort first. We use dental lasers for more efficient care and offer sedation options to maximize relaxation.
