Root Canals in Boynton Beach

Lions, tigers, bears, and Root Canals - Oh, my!

Root canal therapy is probably the most misunderstood and maligned dental procedure.  The butt of sitcom jokes and even horror scenes in movies, the myths of root canals are a challenge to overcome. 

Here's the truth about root canals:

Root canals feel good!  Really.  Root canal treatment relieves the pain of a toothache.

They don't hurt.  You are numb during the procedure.  They don't hurt.

They relieve pain.  Many patients who need root canal therapy arrive in pain.  Treatment relieves that pain.

No, we aren't removing the roots of your tooth.  The infected contents of the roots are removed.  It's a tiny hollow space inside the tooth that we clean out.

Root canals save teeth that would otherwise have to be extracted.

When is root canal needed?

Decay has reached the pulp (nerve) of a tooth.
