|There are few word combinations that cause fear and anxiety, like ‘root canal’. Though this is a common dental procedure, it seems to make most people very nervous just think about it. Like most things related to the dentist, most of these fears are|
|understandable, but really unfounded. Today there are more types of pain methodology available for dentists to use than ever before. If you’ve been diagnosed as being in need of a root canal, you may be a little bit worried, but there’s no need to worry. My name is Dr. Elaine Lu, and my dental office is located at 121 West Colorado Boulevard Monrovia, CA.
Root canals are common part of my job and I treat many patients in my Monrovia office.
Root Canals Can Be Intimidating
Many people have suggested changing the name of the root canal because it has so many negative connotations for people. Unfortunately, if you change the name, you can’t really change the process. At my Monrovia office I take care to perform every root canal with precision and care. I don’t want any of my patients to be more uncomfortable than they have to be. My goal is always to alleviate pain whenever possible to make my patients’ visit pleasant.
While no dentist can promise an absolutely pain-free root canal, modern uses of medication and relaxation techniques can help to ease the burden and reduce the fear and pain. The best advice anyone can give you when dealing with fear of pain at the dentist is to keep a relaxed and open mind.
