Everything You’re Getting Wrong: About Root Canals!

You might be getting some things just right about root canal treatment! For instance, you may realize that it’s the restorative care we will usually suggest for a tooth infection, so we may save your oral health! However, our Moreno Valley, CA team is aware that beyond this clinical detail, there may be some amount of information you’re toting around in your brain that you consider fact but that isn’t exactly accurate! To help you feel wonderful about caring for your smile in this way, your Moreno Valley dentist is happy to touch on some things patients frequently think that requires a bit of clarification!

They Don’t Leave You Without A Tooth

Patients often worry that when they receive a root canal treatment, they are going to be left with just a partial tooth once the treatment is through. While it is true that your Moreno Valley dentist may need to remove some of your dental tissue in order to thoroughly rescue your tooth, this is not where the treatment will end! Instead, we will fill and seal the remaining tooth. Then, if necessary, you will receive a lovely dental crown to restore your tooth’s structure and keep your oral health safe.

They Are Actually Surprisingly Comfortable!

You have probably heard that root canal treatments are uncomfortable. This is the general belief out there! However, it’s nowhere close to being true. When you visit a dentist you trust, such as your Moreno Valley dentist, the process is completely comfortable. The entirety of your procedure will include numbed tissues, which means you’ll know that we’re fixing your tooth … but you won’t feel it.

They Are Absolutely Necessary, When Recommended!

You might hear that you don’t need a root canal but here’s what we want you to know: When you’re visiting your Moreno Valley dentist, you only receive this recommendation when it’s the smartest way to move forward. We practice conservative dental care!
