Root canals … Our Leesburg, Virginia dental office understand that “root canal” is a phrase that might send a shudder down your spine. It’s a treatment that gets a bad rap.
At Family First Dental & Implant Center, we offer treatments that will improve your oral health and the function of your teeth. When it comes to root canals, there are many myths out there.
Root canals are painful!
Root canal takes forever!
These are just a few of the misconceptions. A root canal is necessary when an infection has reached the root of the tooth or when an abscess is present.
The truth is that a root canal will save the tooth and make it functional for years — or for the rest of your life. A root canal treatment is often no more uncomfortable than having a dental filling, and with our sedation dentistry, you can take the edge off during your treatment.
