Do root canals hurt?
The short answer is that getting a root canal doesn’t hurt; it’s the infection inside your tooth that is painful, and root canal therapy removes the infected material, thereby relieving your pain. A root canal is also an essential procedure that’s needed to save an infected or severely decayed tooth from extraction.
At Garden Springs Dental, we perform comfortable root canals for our Lexington, KY patients. Many of them even comment that the procedure was more comfortable than they imagined it could be!
One reason we can accomplish this is that our caring dental team makes your comfort a priority, regardless of the treatment we provide. We want you to see how great it can feel to know your teeth and gums are healthy, so it’s important to us that you don’t hesitate to turn to us when you have a problem like an infected tooth and a throbbing toothache.
Dr. Chris Davis and Dr. Gregory Edens, Jr. have decades of experience between them and utilize the very latest in digital imaging technology. Using diagnostic tools like digital and panoramic x-rays that allow them to see the inside of your tooth in great detail, they can plan the most efficient procedure to remove the painful infection.
If you have a toothache, a raised bump on your gums, or a bad taste in your mouth, you may be experiencing the signs of an infected tooth. You may need a root canal, call our Lexington, KY dental office.
