Endodontists are specially trained to provide root canal treatments in a way that minimizes anxiety so patients can be pain free and healthy again.
Root canals have received a bad reputation as a painful experience for a long time. Thankfully, the truth is that a root canal procedure should not be painful at all! In fact, the purpose of a root canal treatment is to relieve pain, and when the procedure is done by an endodontist you can be sure that it will be as comfortable and easy as possible.
Root Canal Specialists
Endodontists can work in collaboration with a general dentist to support specialized patient care needs. Because endodontists specialize in root canal treatments, patients can have peace of mind that the procedure is executed to the highest care standards. Endodontists receive extensive training to accurately diagnose and treat a damaged tooth nerve. They are committed to completing treatments and procedures in a way that eases patient anxiety and reduces or eliminates pain and discomfort.
National Root Canal Awareness Week
The American Association of Endodontists is celebrating National Root Canal Awareness Week this March in an effort to educate patients about the benefits of seeing a professional endodontist for a root canal treatment and to help people understand that root canal treatments should not cause pain or anxiety.
The purpose of a root canal treatment is to remove the soft inner tissue of a damaged tooth to remove the nerves and blood vessels that have been harmed by decay. By removing the damaged nerve and pulp, a root canal treatment eliminates tooth pain and saves the tooth. The AAE reports that almost 15 million teeth are saved each year thanks to root canal treatments. Unfortunately, due to fears about pain, many people still do not see a dentist or endodontist for a root canal treatment and face further painful consequences or the loss of a tooth as a result of treatment negligence.
Endodontists Reduce Anxiety
An endodontist will work with patients to reduce any fears they may have prior to the treatment and recommend ways to reduce anxiety before and during the procedure. Thanks to innovative technology and advanced medical and pain management practices, there should be no need to fear a root canal! Best of all, a professional endodontist is trained in the latest procedures and practices so patients can be confident they are receiving the best treatment possible.
