If there are two words that strike the most fear into the hearts of dental patients, it’s these: root canal. But while you may have heard rumors about how terrifying they are, root canals are relatively painless and extremely effective procedures – not to mention, completely commonplace. According to the American Dental Association Survey of Dental Services Rendered, over 15 million root canal treatments are performed annually in the United States.

The words “root canal” may sound scary, but it really doesn’t need to. The more informed you become, the less scary they are. Did you know the phrase “root canal” actually has two meanings? First, it refers to the hollow space within the root of the tooth that’s filled with soft tissue and nerves (also called pulp). Second, it’s a very common and relatively simple procedure for removing inflamed or infected pulp from a tooth before the infection spreads and the tooth starts to decay.
