What You Need To Know About Root Canals! [BLOG]

  • August 20, 2018

If a dentist has told you recently that you need a root canal, or you suspect it’s the solution for your tooth sensitivity or dental pain, we’re guessing you’re not too thrilled about it.

We can’t promise to get you excited about root canals, but at the very least, our team at Gentle Dental Care wants to clarify some commonly-held misconceptions about this form of dental treatment that simply don’t ring true anymore.

Not in a modern, compassionate dental practice like ours, anyway!

Here’s What You Need To Know About Root Canals!

While we can’t say that any dental treatment will ever be thought of as a fun, exciting way to spend an afternoon, we can say that, at Gentle Dental Care at least, the procedures you assume are the most painful and terrifying simply aren’t.

This is especially true when it comes to our gentle, pain-free root canals in Plainville, CT.


Here’s what you need to know!

*Root Canals Aren’t What They Used To Be*

Root canals are routine for Dr. Peltzer and our team at Gentle Dental Care. We know that root canals aren’t what they used to be, yet the fear they induce among dental patients persists.

In our Plainville, CT practice, patients consistently report positive feedback about their root canal procedures at the hands of our specialists. That’s largely due to the fact that our modern technology allows more precise, careful planning and faster, more comfortable treatment and recovery than past root canals.

And it also has much to do with Dr. Peltzer’s special training and experience in administering IV sedation for the strongest relaxation method available in modern dentistry!

*Pain-Free Root Canals Should Be The Norm*

While it makes total sense to dread root canals because you’ve had a horrible experience with that treatment yourself, we want to make clear that there can only be two reasons you still feel that way.

The first is that you had a root canal so long ago, that your procedure, unfortunately, was performed with only the tools and techniques that were relevant to the time.

The second is likely because, whether you had one recently or not, you didn’t have it done at a modern practice who puts your comfort first.

At Gentle Dental Care, we know that pain-free root canals aren’t just possible, but advanced dental technology demands that they should be the new norm!

We’re dedicated to giving you the most comfortable, positive patient experience possible, so if you’re in need of a root canal procedure, we’d love for you to talk to us about your fears and concerns and how we can meet all your needs to preserve your oral health.
