The Truth About Root Canals
To perform a root canal, Dr. Hermen starts by numbing a patient’s tooth, and then he creates a small hole in the enamel so he can remove the infected tissue. The tooth is then cleaned, filled, and eventually topped with a crown. So, why do so many people think this treatment is painful? It’s because root canals often get incorrectly connected with the terrible toothaches they help relieve. In truth, while in the chair, it feels very similar to getting a small filling, which is to say not uncomfortable at all!
