What Our Patients Have to Say

Myths about Root Canals

MYTH 1

Root canal treatment is painful.

Root canal treatment is actually the opposite, it relieves the pain. The perception of root canals being painful began decades ago, but with modern technologies and anesthetics, treatment is no more uncomfortable than having a filling placed.

MYTH 2

Root canal treatment causes other infections.

These myths stem from research done by Dr. Price in the 1920s. Research was able to discredit his findings in the 1930s and root canals have been supported and reported to be safe by the AAE with appropriate literature since.

MYTH 3

I should pull my tooth instead of getting a root canal.

Nothing can replace your natural tooth. As long as your tooth is protected with a final restoration and crown after root canal treatment, it should last you as long as you brush it and take care of it.

To learn more about root canal myths, please visit the American Association of Endodontists.
