Root canals have a very bad reputation for some reason and I find a complete opposite, I find that most patients once or numb and they're seated ready to start a root canal I would say it takes about 5 to 10 minutes before they sort of those off and a lot of them even fall asleep because root canals are done in a manner now where a lot of the time in the past they were done with very little files and the dentist had to go in and do it manually now we have technology like we have like it's similar to a sonar machine where we can actually measure all the way to the tip of the root electronically so that takes you know that takes a lot of the steps out of the procedure we also use Rotary instruments which are the same files that dentists use use in the past now they're electronically driven and it just makes the whole experience faster you know a lot of people have stories of root canals that lasted two or three appointments most root canals can now be accomplished in one visit in many cases and it's really it's it's not as bad as it has a really bad reputation but I find it the complete opposite its root canals I think it's because a lot of patients come in with a lot of pain as a result of needing a root canal but once they get here and they're comfortable and numb the actual root canal procedure is very easy

Learn Why You Might Need a Root Canal
A root canal procedure is used to save a tooth from extraction. We may recommend a root canal procedure if you have extensive tooth decay, a broken tooth, or an infected tooth. Without proper treatment, the infection inside your tooth can cause more pain, lead to a dangerous abscess, or spread to other areas.
Watch for symptoms that could indicate you need root canal therapy. These include:
- Sensitive tooth
- Swelling in your face
- Warm area around your jaw
- Pressure in your jaw
