Myths about Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is usually painful.

When people are told that they need a root canal treatment, they usually think about pain. However, the pain they feel is caused by an infection in the tooth, not by root canal treatment. Root canal treatment is done to eliminate that pain and prevent it from coming back. The procedure itself is painless. A local anaesthetic numbs the tooth and the surrounding area. Many people may be afraid to have root canal treatment carried out because they are anxious about having any dental treatment. Please let your dentist know if you are nervous about dental treatment as they can best advise you on how they can help you cope or manage your anxiety. The nerves inside the tooth are removed, so I won't feel any pain.
Many people believe that once they have had root canal treatment, they will no longer feel pain in the treated tooth. This, however, may not always be the case. Although the tooth will no longer be sensitive to hot or cold food or beverages, the area around the tooth may be sensitive for a few days after treatment,. If this happens to you, please let your dentist know so they can best advise you on what to do. I'm not feeling any pain, so I don't really need a root canal treatment.
Many teeth that need root canal therapy will not cause pain. But that does not mean the tooth is okay. Your dentist has ways to see if the tooth's pulp is damaged or infected. If it is, then you will need root canal therapy, even if the tooth doesn't hurt. Without treatment, surrounding tissues may be damaged.

Root canal treatment means I'm having the roots of my tooth, or my whole tooth, removed.

The whole point of root canal therapy is to try and save a tooth, not to remove it. Your tooth and roots are not removed. The contents inside the canals are removed and the canals are filled on the inside only. After I get the root canal treatment, I won't have to go back to the dentist for a while.
Once you have received root canal therapy, you will need to make follow-up appointments to have a permanent filling or crown put on the treated tooth. Once the tooth has been fully restored, your dentist will advise how soon you need to come back for your next check up.
