“We don’t do them unless we have to do them, but if we have to, it’s not anything to worry about.”
That was one of the several honest statements made about root canals by Dr. Kenneth Weddell in the video below. There are so many scary rumors out there about how painful or uncomfortable root canals are, that people are often afraid to undergo the procedure even when it’s the best option for their teeth.
Dr. Weddell proves time and time again that root canals are nothing to be afraid of. If you experience any discomfort from the procedure, it can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen.
If you’ve been told you need a root canal, don’t let fear keep you from getting the treatment. There really is nothing to be afraid of!
