Root canal therapy is that one buzz word that dentistry is known by. It's really unfortunate because, in our office, we believe that comfort is the first item. If a person isn't comfortable, we're not comfortable. So whether it's root canal therapies we're doing or just a simple filling, you have to be profoundly numb in our office or we're not going to be happy.
So, when you're doing root canals, I believe that that area must be so profoundly numb that we're able to treat that tooth as if we're really taking care of just a simple filling. Our patients often fall asleep while we're doing root canals, which is a shock to them. Their biggest surprise is that they fell asleep and they wake up and we're done, not because we put them to sleep but because they were so comfortable, they just fell asleep watching television or listening to music.
So, root canal therapy today has really advanced. What you used to know and what you used to do is multiple trips, multiple visits. In our office, it's all done in one office visit, in most cases, restored in one office visit, so you're numb one time. The root canal is accomplished and the next time we're putting on your new, beautiful, permanent crown.
