Debunking Root Canal Myths: What You Need to Know | Dentist in East Las Vegas

In the world of dentistry, myths abound, especially when it comes to procedures like root canals. But fear not, modern advancements have revolutionized dental care, making procedures like root canals quick and virtually painless. Let’s debunk some common misconceptions:

Myth 1: Root canals are painful.

While this may have been true in the past, today’s techniques and technology have made root canals relatively painless. In fact, the discomfort from damaged tissue often outweighs any discomfort during the procedure itself.

Myth 2: Root canals can cause illness.

Contrary to popular belief, root canals don’t put you at risk of illness or infection. Research even suggests they may lower your risk of certain cancers by up to 45%.

Myth 3: Extraction is a better option.

Keeping your natural teeth is always preferable. Removing teeth can lead to surrounding teeth shifting and future dental issues. With a high success rate, a properly cared-for tooth after a root canal can last a lifetime.

Don’t let misinformation deter you from essential dental care. Contact our office at Eastern Hills Family Dental today to schedule an appointment and learn the truth about root canals.
