Getting to the Root of Root Canal Treatment

Is it truly a dental patient’s nightmare?

If you were to create a list of life’s most horrible experiences, then root canal treatment would certainly find a place on the list. A lot of people are afraid of this dental procedure. Just the two little words “root canal” send shivers down the spine of a person. 

But why are root canals so haunted with fear, and are they really worth fearing? 

Let’s find out. 

Ouch, it hurts! 

Yes, this is one of the main reasons people fear root canal treatment. It hurts…a lot. However, dentists at one of the UK’s leading private dental clinics on Wimpole Street wish to clarify misconceptions about pain. 

According to them, it is not the procedure that is painful; it is your abscessed tooth that is causing the pain. Clinically speaking, teeth infested by bacteria are more difficult to numb completely. 

But, Thanks to advanced technology, patients are now put under conscious sedation, which makes them feel sleepy, and they hardly remember the treatment process. This makes for a more comfortable root canal treatment than ever. 

Getting to the “root” of the problem 

Alas, root canal treatment is one of the least understood dental procedures, and that contributes to creating fear. Also, a typical explanation of a root canal procedure would go like this: “a hole is drilled in your tooth…” Well, when you read this it doesn’t exactly calm your mind, does it? 

It is better to discuss the procedure directly with a dentist rather than reading the “horror” descriptions of the treatment. 

Fear of the price?

Yes, root canals are pricey procedures; but they are worth it. Several dental insurance plans cover them. Additionally, some of the most prestigious dental clinics in London offer financing on dental procedures. So, price shouldn’t frighten you regarding root canal treatment. 

So, discard all those fearful interpretations of root canal treatment from your mind and see this procedure as a boon that will save your precious tooth. 

Until now, you read about how painful the root canal is and this notion got etched in your mind. Now, why not do the opposite? Convince your mind that a root canal is a painless procedure and see how your mind calms down and the fear vanishes. 

Choose clinics that maintain the highest dental standards and use the most sophisticated technology and skills. They are known to make patients comfortable first and then begin the procedure.
