Root Canal Safety
The safety of root canals is very controversial depending on who you ask. Some scientific evidence shows that root canals could lead to fairly serious issues. The American Association of Endodontists has stated otherwise. They say no evidence can be found that links root canals to any kind of inflammatory diseases or cancer.
If you think you need a root canal, you should call us. It’s always important to consult with your dentist about these possible risks. We can help you understand your best options and put your mind at ease with your decision.
Root Canals Are Not Painful
Many tend to associate root canals with being a painful procedure. You will likely feel pain on account of the
infection. However, during the root canal itself, we will make every effort to keep you comfortable through anesthetics.
During a root canal procedure, the tooth and surrounding area is numbed using a local anesthetic. This makes the procedure more comfortable, so you will not have to worry about that. You will feel much better once the infection is removed.
When A Root Canal Is Necessary
If your tooth is severely infected, you may need to have a root canal treatment. An untreated infection deep within the tooth could cause further problems and illnesses. The procedure will help save your tooth by removing tissue that is dead or dying.
If you are unsure whether you need a root canal treatment, you should give us a call. Dr. Bhupatiraju can take a look at the problem you are having and give you a solid diagnosis.
Root Canal Recovery Time
The recovery time for a root canal varies depending on the reason for the procedure. In some cases, recovery time could take up to 6 months. You may feel soreness for a few days, and your tooth will feel different from the rest of your teeth.
