When it comes to dental procedures, few evoke as much apprehension as the term “root canal.” Root canals have long been shrouded in myths and misconceptions, often causing unnecessary fear among patients. In this article, we aim to dispel these myths and shed light on the truth behind pain-free endodontic procedures.

Debunking Root Canal Myths

Myth 1: Root Canals Are Painful

Truth: Modern endodontic procedures, including root canals, are virtually pain-free. Advances in anesthesia and technology ensure that patients experience minimal discomfort during the process. At Coquitlam Dental Group, our commitment to your comfort is paramount.

Myth 2: Root Canals Cause Illness

Truth: This myth has been debunked by numerous scientific studies. Root canals are performed to eliminate infection, not cause it. With proper sterilization and advanced techniques, the risk of infection is significantly reduced.

Myth 3: Extraction Is a Better Alternative

Truth: Saving your natural tooth through a root canal is often the preferred option. Tooth extraction can lead to a cascade of issues, including misalignment and difficulty in chewing. Our experienced dentists, Dr. Shahram Kamaei and Dr. Stuart Katz, focus on preserving your natural teeth whenever possible.

Myth 4: Root Canals Weaken Teeth

Truth: Root canals are designed to strengthen and save a tooth. Once the infected pulp is removed and the canal is cleaned and sealed, the tooth is reinforced with a crown. This preserves the tooth’s functionality and structural integrity.

Myth 5: Root Canals Require Multiple Appointments

Truth: Technological advancements and streamlined procedures have significantly reduced the time required for root canals. In many cases, the entire process can be completed in a single appointment, minimizing inconvenience for patients.

Myth 6: Only Severely Painful Teeth Need Root Canals

Truth: While severe pain may be a symptom, not all cases present intense discomfort. Some infections may be asymptomatic, emphasizing the importance of regular dental check-ups to identify and address issues early on.
