Are Root Canals Painful?

As far as dental procedures are concerned, there are few procedures more feared than root canal treatment. Unfortunately, a stigma around root canals makes patients think that having a root canal is an extremely painful procedure. However, fortunately for patients, that reputation is undeserved. Root canal therapy is actually no more painful than most other dental procedures. 

Most patients find root canal therapy no more painful than a large filling. Root canal therapy actually relieves tooth pain!

Gentle Root Canal Treatment in Van Nuys

At Saticoy Plaza Dentistry, we provide gentle root canal treatment to relieve pain and restore your teeth to health, removing any signs of infection. We perform the procedure with precision and care using advanced technologies like rotary endodontics, making the experience as comfortable and quick as possible for you. Advanced technology also improves the efficiency of our services, allowing us to eliminate the infection with less damage to the tooth. 

Our friendly team will be there to help you through any anxiety you may feel, using their extensive skill and gentle, empathetic touch to maintain a calm, comfortable environment. 

Signs You Need Root Canal Treatment

Patients who need root canal treatment may notice one or multiple signs of infection. A toothache can be a sign of tooth infection, but symptoms can also be more subtle. For example, you may only experience enhanced sensitivity or swollen gums at first.

You should never ignore tooth pain or other signs of infections. Untreated infections may spread, leading to serious health issues down the line. With infections, the pain usually worsens as it advances, but once the root canal treatment has been completed, your pain and infection will be resolved. 

Since root canal treatment may weaken the tooth’s structure, we might recommend placing a dental crown over the affected tooth for added protection and strength.
