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

Think it or not, root canals are actually not very painful. Most people report that the root canal process is about on par with the sensation you’ll get from an oral filling. When you come into our office for treatment, Dr. Tony Hatch & Dr. Shivi Gupta will use a local anesthetic to numb the spots around the tooth to be operated on, meaning that you won’t feel much of anything during the service. And because Dr. Tony Hatch & Dr. Shivi Gupta is so skilled, they’ll make only the gentlest of movements in your oral cavity, making the service that much less hard for you.

Do you need to visit our office for a root canal service? If so, don’t hesitate to contact us at 858-530-0300 now. The Scripps Rock Dental team will help you set up your next appointment at our San Diego, California, office, and when you get here we’ll take care of you just like you were a member of our own family.
