Toothy truths about painless, predictable, and healthy root canal therapy

Toothy truths about painless, predictable, and healthy root canal therapy

Root Canal Therapy in Milton ON area

Scott and Derry Dental Care prioritize life-changing services and treatments from our office in Milton, Ontario. And one of the best things we can do for your smile and “self” is to protect and preserve your teeth! While it has an (undeserved) negative reputation, root canal therapy (RCT) may, in fact, be the only way to “save” damaged teeth. There are many myths about this standard treatment. Our experienced and skilled dentist, Dr. Jameela Jifri, is happy to dispel these misconceptions. 

Myth: Root canal treatment is painful. 

What we want you to know about the perceived “dangers” of RCT is, first and foremost, that this process does not cause pain. The truth is RCT relieves pain. This procedure is designed to resolve deep decay or severe damage to the inside of the tooth. Damage to this “pulp,” which contains nerves, is associated with intense pain, pressure, and other distressing symptoms. RCT removes the nerves and other damaged parts of the pulp. With the nerve gone, you will not be able to feel pain. You can get back to sleeping uninterrupted throughout the night, enjoying your favourite foods again (without pain and sensitivity), and generally being your most productive, happy self!

Myth: Root canal therapy is aggressive. 

The procedure of accessing and removing the pulp can be done in a single visit to our office. From our patients’ perspective, the process is no more extensive than a dental filling, and fillings are largely not plagued with the same level of fear among the general public as RCT. Additionally, modern root canal treatment is well-tolerated with little more than a local anesthetic. It is a conservative and tooth-preserving alternative to the much more intensive tooth extraction. Plus, it is an affordable alternative to replacing an extracted tooth. 

Myth: Root canal therapy is not healthy. 

RCT is a demonstrated, clinically effective and safe way to restore the health of a badly damaged tooth. In doing so, we also avoid further damage to the mouth and body. After all, oral infections often do not “stay put.” They can travel to local and distant parts of the body. Systemic infections are a threat and represent a medical emergency. Also, by avoiding tooth loss, we help to prevent bone loss in the jaw. Bone resorption can lead to various adverse health consequences, altering your bite and healthy chewing and speech function. Additionally, while no treatment has a 100% success rate, RCT comes close – resolving threats to oral and overall health for good, with no future treatment necessary in at least 97% of cases. 

With the usual good home care and visits to our office in Milton, ON, for professional care, your treated tooth can keep going strong for years to come. Call Scott and Derry Dental Care at (855) 438-4999 for credible information and expertise you can trust.
