Understanding Root Canals
Dr. Greg Ceyhan, Dentist in Glendale Arizona: “Hi, I’m Dr. Greg Ceyhan from Aesthetic Dentistry of Arrowhead in Glendale, Arizona and that’s in the Arrowhead area.
A root canal is probably one of the most feared words in the English language. It kind of makes people sweat when we even talk about it. Realistically, for the majority of my patients that undergo that procedure, root canals are painless. It’s no different than getting a filling or any other type of dental procedure in a Glendale dentist’s office. We usually, well, almost always, anesthetize or numb our patients, so they don’t feel anything. And the procedure takes probably about an hour to 90 minutes and all we’re doing is cleaning the inside of the tooth, removing the infected nerve out of the tooth and then filling the inside of the tooth with something, so that the tooth does not get reinfected.”
