What comes to mind when you think of the words “root canal?” Do you think they’re pain-inducing? That’s a normal answer that we get. To correct some of the falsehoods surrounding root canal treatments, read this post. If you have any extra questions, please be sure to call our office and we’ll be thrilled to help you clear up any misunderstanding about root canal procedures.

Think it or not, root canals are actually not very painful. Most people say that the root canal service is about on par with the sensation you’ll feel from an oral filling. When you visit our office for service, Dr. Andrew Calhoun will use a local anesthetic to numb the areas around the tooth to be operated on, meaning that you won’t feel much of anything during the procedure. And since Dr. Andrew Calhoun is very skilled, he’ll make only the most precise of movements in your oral cavity, making the treatment that much less painful for you.

Do you need to come into our office for a root canal treatment? If so, don’t hesitate to call us at 904-296-8884 now. The Jacksonville Endodontic Associates staff will help you arrange your next visit at our Jacksonville, Florida, office, and when you get here we’ll take care of you just like you were a member of our own family.
