Title: Myths about Root Canal Treatment

Myths about Root Canal Treatment 
  • Root Canal Treatment in Dubai is considered to be
    the most feared dental procedure by many
  • Survey results show that many people in Dubai
    with a fear of the dentist, base their fears on
    someone elses experiences and what they have
    heard rather than their own experiences.
    Therefore, this inaccurate description and
    unnecessary fear of root canals often prevent
    patients from visiting the Dentist in Abu Dhabi
    and having the care they need. There are
    instances, where patients have gone as far as
    requesting that a tooth is extracted, rather than
    opting for a root canal to save the tooth.

Myth Root Canal is painful
  • Root canal therapy is used to alleviate pain.
    Most people who have root canal treatment admit
    they did not experience any pain during the
    appointment and felt better afterward. Root canal
    therapy is performed to ease the pain and the
    reason that it labelled a painful treatment is
    because of the early treatment methods. Also, if
    the patient is suffering from pain on the day the
    procedure is scheduled, the apprehension and fear
    may heighten the sensations during the procedure.
    Today, with the developments in the latest dental
    technology, root canal treatment is no more
    uncomfortable than having a regular tooth filling.

Myth A root canal may need several visits until
the procedure is completed
  • Normally, a root canal treatment can be completed
    in one to two appointments. However, there are a
    number of factors that determine the number of
    appointment that is required to treat a root
    canal such as the extent of the infection and the
    difficulty of the root canal. The tooth needs to
    be restored after root canal therapy to ensure
    the tooth functions properly. These other
    appointments necessary to completely restore the
    tooth are not a part of the root canal process.

Myth Root canal therapy makes you ill
  • Even though, many studies reveal that that root
    canal therapy can lead to other illnesses and
    health conditions such as heart disease, kidney
    disease, or arthritis, there is not confirmed or
    precise explanation or comprehensive research
    report that can confirm this.

Myth  Only teeth that hurt can have a root canal
  • Teeth that need root canal treatment are not
    always painful. Most often, it is teeth that were
    already dead that need treatment to prevent the
    tooth from becoming infected.The Dental Surgeon
    in Dubai will examine the tooth that requires
    treatment thoroughly during your checkup.
    Sometimes, the dentist may even discover that a
    tooth has been already dead or in the process of
    dying during a routine dental check. A dead tooth
    can be confirmed by temperature testing,
    percussion testing and using a pulp vitality
