Root canal therapy offers an effective way to save your teeth from extraction.
Here at Drs. Batten & Heath Family Dentistry, we understand that dental procedures are often viewed with anxiety, and one of the most feared procedures is the root canal. In reality, root canal therapy is a safe and effective dental treatment that can save teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted. We are committed to providing top-notch dental care and to making your experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible, so we are happy to discuss any concerns you have about root canal therapy and dispel some of the sensationalist myths that have accumulated around this procedure.
One of the more common myths about root canal therapy that we at Drs. Batten & Heath Family Dentistry hear in our office is that this procedure is excruciatingly painful. The truth of the matter is that with today’s dental sedation and anesthetic methods, a root canal is no more painful or uncomfortable than getting a filling. In fact, the pain caused by the affected tooth is probably greater than anything you’ll experience during the procedure. Another common misconception about root canal therapy is that it can only provide a temporary solution, but in reality this procedure can preserve a tooth indefinitely, and with proper at-home care, it can last a lifetime.
We at Drs. Batten & Heath Family Dentistry are proud to serve the Walkertown, North Carolina community, and we want to help you keep your teeth as healthy as possible.
