Hartford, CT Root Canal Treatment
Root Canal Fears
It's natural and normal to be a little anxious about having a root canal, but those fears will be assuaged by your dentist at your initial exam and consultation. Thanks to sedation dentistry, you won’t feel anything during the procedure. The area is thoroughly numbed first so that you can sit back and relax the rest of the appointment with your Hartford dentist. Some patients are also worried about whether the procedure will work. It is estimated that root canal treatments have a success rate of 87 percent after 8-10 years according to a study conducted at the UCL Eastman Dental Institute.
Root Canal Benefits
As fearful as many patients are about root canal therapy, it is one of the most effective and beneficial dental procedures. It allows you to keep your original tooth, which is a good thing for a number of reasons. If the tooth is extracted, it leaves a gap in your smile and your other teeth can shift out of position. If you’ve been living with intense tooth pain, an emergency root canal by your Hartford dentist is the best way to eliminate the pain you’ve been experiencing.
If you haven’t been able to smile for a while due to a painfully decayed tooth, now’s the time to call a dentist for a root canal. Dr. Muneet Nanda and the team at Bright Dental in Hartford, CT, are committed to providing you with the assistance you need in a calm and caring environment.
