If you have a tooth that is tender, sensitive to cold and heat, and causing pain, you may need a root canal treatment.
The first question most patients ask about root canal treatment is “do root canals hurt?”. In the hands of an expert dentist, the discomfort of a root canal is minimized to the point where you may not feel any pain at all.
More importantly, however, the temporary discomfort of a root canal pales compared to the pain of leaving a rotten tooth untreated.
Why Root Canals
What’s most important about root canals is their purpose, which is to save the tooth and protect it from future decay. If done in time, a root canal can save the healthy part of the tooth and help avoid more complicated and expensive treatments.
