The team at Pasadena Family Dentistry hopes its patients are having a good work week! In this month’s newsletter, we wanted to address a common misconception patients have about a specific restorative treatment: root canals.
While we aren’t entirely sure where the myth came from, we guess that television and other media is the culprit for giving root canal therapy a bad reputation over the years. The reality is there are few procedures as predictable, beneficial, and successful as root canals. With nearly a 100 percent success rate, your dentist in Pasadena can save a tooth that would otherwise be lost and provide immediate relief to your symptoms.
Instead of fearing the treatment, we hope you take a moment to learn when you may need a root canal, the process, and other notable considerations. We guarantee getting treatment is better than doing nothing at all!
