If you have a really bad toothache, the kind that prevents you from going about your day normally, then it might be due to an infection in the dental pulp. What is the dental pulp? It’s a small bit of soft tissue located inside every tooth, which among other things, contains a sensitive nerve. It can often become exposed to bacteria due to a cavity or crack in the enamel. What is the best way to fix this problem? Root canal therapy! Despite what you may have heard in the media, this procedure is safe, effective, and virtually pain-free thanks to the latest techniques and technology. At Dental Wellness of Lexington, the biggest regret our root canal patients usually have is not getting one sooner!

Why You Shouldn’t Fear a Root Canal
Why is a root canal the most feared procedure in all of dentistry?
It all comes down to one big misconception: that the procedure is painful. In reality, with modern anesthetics and sedation, most patients basically feel nothing while in the chair. Why the bad reputation? Root canals are primarily used to fix the absolute worst toothaches, and pain from the initial problem is often incorrectly associated with the treatment itself. When you get a root canal with us, we guarantee it will be a comfortable and relaxing experience, and better yet, you’ll come out on the other side with a tooth that feels much, much better!
