Probably not


Ck w your surgeon, but probably not a problem. Remember that rather than having to contort your neck, the dentist can adjust the dental chair, the headrest, and his own posture to keep you as comfortable as possible.

Shouldn't be!!!


Root canal therapy or endodontic therapy is usually not painful if the proper anesthetic is used and infection is under control. Discuss your concerns with your dentist ahead of time.

Get 2nd opinion


It's hard for me to answer that question without seeing your radiographs. Do you have pain? Do you have discomfort to hot/cold/chewing? Trouble sleeping at night? If you were diagnosed as needing 3 root canals, you can always get a second opinion from another dentist.

Abscesses are worse


Root canal therapy is the treatment for removal of infected nerve tissue. Left untreated the infection can progress into a serious abscess in the jaw bone. Much more serious health problems occur when abscesses burst into the bloodstream , potentially, even fatal. You only have three choices in this life: 1 fix the tooth 2 pull the tooth or 3 live with the pain. You probably don't want option 3.

The root canal procedure itself is not dangerous to your health. The infection leading to a root canal can be. If your abscess penetrates your bone and makes its way through the soft tissue, it may cause swelling due to the pus build up, and would require antibiotics management.

Root canal therapy


Root canal therapy involves making a small hole into the tooth to remove the pulp from the center of a tooth. Mechanical and hand instruments are used to remove pulp and irrigants are used to flush out the contents. Finally, a filling of gutta percha is cemented into the cleaned canal spaces and the tooth is restored with a filling and/or a crown. Root canal therapy usually takes 1 or 2 visits.

Root canal: Crown


Yes .Root canal therapy removes dead infected tissues from teeth. The tissue (blood vessels) when alive help the tooth supple and flexible. When there is now no blood supply the tooth dehydrates and become brittle. Molars, your back teeth, crush with hundreds of pounds of force. That can easily break a tooth. Crowns protect the tooth from that force.

Normal to be scared


It's not unusual to be apprehensive about have a root canal. After all, look at what the media, tv shows, and movies show about root canals. Modern day root canals are 99% pain free. Profound anesthesia reduces pain. The dentist will place a barrier device (rubber dam) around the tooth, isolating it from the mouth and then the nerve and dead cells will be removed from the tooth.
