When a cavity is not treated, it can cause pain or even infection. In that case, a root canal therapy is necessary. The misbelief that Root Canal Therapy is a painful procedure has made some patients to avoid getting it done when it’s necessary and as a consequence, people can loose there teeth. The fact is, Root Canal Therapy is done under local anesthesia (freezing) and patients won’t feel pain at all. We, in Pitt Lake Dental, use state of the art equipment like full automatic electric handpiece and also very accurate apex locator to perform a root canal.
