A close friend of mine recently expressed fears about her upcoming root canal. She was anxious about the pain she might experience and worried about getting work off for the multiple office visits to complete the procedure. I assured her that painful root canal procedures are a thing of the past with modern dentistry.
With the latest technology and anesthetics, a root canal (endodontic treatment) is no more painful than receiving a filling. Most root canals can be completed in one or two office visits.
If you have been neglecting your teeth because of fears or concerns about a particular procedure and have not been to your Jefferson City dentist recently, I encourage you to schedule an exam, cleaning, and consultation today.
