At Monterey Dental Centre, we perform root canal therapy to treat the nerve inside the tooth. Unfortunately, teeth are unable to heal themselves so root canal therapy can be performed in order to save teeth that are diseased, infected, fractured, or have become non-vital over time. Performing a root canal thereby reduces the need for extracting the affected teeth.
The Root Canal Myth
The traditional myth of Root Canal Therapy is that it is very painful. Root Canal Therapy, contrary to popular belief, relieves the pain and discomfort that is very common with abscessed teeth and infection. Our team is attentive to your comfort both during and after the appointment. Patients with anxiety regarding root canal therapy have the option to consider one of our sedation options during their root canal appointment.
