Despite efforts made by the dental community to help patients discern the truth regarding Root Canal Therapy, it remains the most feared dental procedure. The American Association of Endodontists believes that most people with a fear of root canal therapy base it on someone else’s experience, rather than their own. While this proves that inaccurate information is continuing to circulate, it is even causing some to seek tooth extraction as an alternative to having a root canal. Even so, dental professionals urge patients—do not believe the hype. Root canals are designed to relieve pain, not create it.
