22 May A Root Canal Isn’t Really that Bad
Simply hearing a dentist in Boynton Beach utter the words, “You need a root canal” is enough to send many people running to Baltimore, Birmingham or Baraboo, while drenched in a cold sweat. Dr. Rosemary Bagdhassarian, the Boynton Beach dentist who practices “dentistry with a hug,” would like you to know that there’s no need to flee.
In reality, the most painful part of root canal therapy is the pain you are experiencing before the procedure – the pain that led you to a dentist’s chair in Boynton Beach in the first place. At least, that’s the way it is with H.A.B. Dental in Boynton Beach, which expanded to a second dental clinic in Boca Raton earlier this year.
We strive to create a nurturing environment where you and your family will feel comfortable bringing any questions or concerns you might have regarding your oral health. And we’re hoping that giving you some information about root canals may help ease any fears you may have.
What is root canal?
It is usually the decay or infection driving the need for a root canal that can cause the most unpleasant pain. That’s because the pulp, which is the soft area inside your tooth composed of blood vessels and nerves – yes, highly sensitive nerves! – is negatively impacted.
If Boynton Beach – and now Boca Raton – dentist Dr. Bagdhassarian recommends that you have a root canal, she will remove the damaged or infected pulp from your tooth, thoroughly clean the inside of your tooth and then seal it up.
“People fear root canals because they assume they are painful,” WebMD says. “Actually, most people report that the procedure itself is no more painful than having a filling placed.”
At H.A.B. Dental in Boca Raton and in Boynton Beach, we understand that telling you that a root canal really isn’t that bad might not be enough to ease your fears. We will do whatever we can to help make the process as easy and as stress-free as well as pain-free for you as we can.
