Root canals have a bad image and unfortunately the reality hasn't sunk into that misconception. The technology and the instruments for doing root canals now is advanced so much now that a root canal is almost like having a filling done. I can't tell you how many times I've done a root canal and people are like “That's it?” “That's all there was?” They're expecting pain. As long as it's managed properly, if there's infection, as long as it's treated with antibiotics, a root canal, you're numbed up, you don't feel anything, and then that tooth is saved for so you don't lose the tooth.
- You can avoid a lengthy recovery time if we are able to save your tooth.
- You can save money by requiring only one procedure – a root canal – versus an extraction, implant placement, and dental crown to replace the lost tooth.
- You can protect your remaining teeth from shifting by keeping your tooth in place for structural purposes.
- Our new CBCT scanner makes getting the necessary imaging much simpler.

Root Canals End Pain, Not Cause It
The idea that root canals are painful is a popular but untrue one. People often mistake the pain of an infected tooth for the pain of treating the infection. At Duffield Dentistry, a root canal is no more painful than getting a filling.
Plus, we always make sure that your mouth is numb before we begin any procedure. If you’re nervous about having a root canal performed, though, we’re happy to provide you with one of our safe sedation options to calm your nerves.
After your root canal, a new crown will strengthen your repaired tooth and help prevent further problems down the road.
