Dr. Terry Vines at Pure Gold Dental explains whether it is painful to have a root canal procedure performed
Redlands, CA patients who are told by their dentist that they may require a root canal procedure to save a natural tooth often ask: is it painful to get a root canal? Learn about this and more with the team of Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry.

What is a root canal?


Also called endodontic therapy, root canals are specifically performed to remove the dental pulp from inside the tooth, disinfect the canals, and save the natural tooth structure from extraction. This procedure is done when necessary to provide patients with an option other than removal of the tooth to maintain a healthy smile.

Why choose root canal therapy?


Root canal therapy is often chosen because it eliminates the need to remove a tooth and require replacement with expensive alternatives such as dentures, bridges, and implants. Instead, it maintains the tooth in place, helping save not only money, but bone.

Is it painful to get a root canal?


Patients are advised of the process of the root canal procedure, and are often relieved to learn that the entire procedure is pain free. Prior to starting, the patient is anesthetized with local anesthesia. Additionally, we provide sedation for optimum comfort for our patients. The entire process is done right in our office.

What are the benefits of root canal therapy?


  • Affordable
  • Effective treatment for infection
  • Done under anesthesia and sedation for comfort
  • Eliminates the need for tooth extraction
  • Completely safe alternative

Most patients with infection of a natural tooth can benefit from root canal therapy, especially if they want to maintain their smile’s appearance and function while treating the problem at hand.
