Root Canal in Massachusetts: It’s Not as Scary As You Think!
Created on November 30, 2013
A lot of people associate root canal procedures as painful and uncomfortable. We even have clients here in our Massachusetts dental practice who are quite anxious when we recommend root canal for their dental woes. However, we often assure them that modern advancements in dentistry has made a root canal procedure quite a comfortable dental experience.
Root Canal Misconception
The pain associated with a root canal is actually not from the procedure itself but from the infected pulp which often calls for a root canal. The pulp is the soft tissue within your teeth which houses the blood vessels, connective tissue and nerves. When the pulp is inflamed, the nerves and connective tissues are pressed together, making you feel the excruciating pain associated with root canal.
Common Causes of an Infected Pulp
By and large, a pulp could be infected with the following reasons:
repeated dental procedures
presence of deep cavities
