At the office of Jeffery A. Spilman D.D.S., we understand that root canals have a bad reputation. But we don’t think it’s entirely deserved.
“The reason a root canal got a horrible name over the years is sometimes teeth are so infected that the anesthesia doesn’t work and patients … are in an awful lot of pain during the procedure,” Dr. Spilman said.
Root canal procedures are often necessary to save a badly infected tooth from extraction. Plus, when you see a highly skilled dentist like Dr. Spilman, you can experience relatively little discomfort during the procedure!
