“When a patient hears the words ‘root canal’, their first response is often concern or fear,” Mukilteo Family Dentistry explains. “The procedure and therapies used to treat damaged root canal are unfamiliar, and thus, may seem frightening.”
In order to set the record straight, Mukilteo Family Dentistry recently released a two-part article series explaining the signs, symptoms, and procedure that can solve root canal problems.

An individual may find that they’re in need of a root canal when decay begins to form within the interior of the tooth, as opposed to the exterior. This is usually quite painful, most often causing symptoms of severe toothache and increased sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.
“The space within a tooth, called the pulp chamber, fills the length of the tooth root to the tip,” the article says. “This chamber is called a canal—a root canal. The root canal procedure is a oral surgery where the dentist goes inside of the tooth to clean out decay within these canals.”
This dental procedure sounds intense, but the patient is numbed the entire time and only feels minimal pain, at the most. The article emphasizes that, “Modern day techniques and equipment have developed to the point that, in the majority of cases, root canal procedures are not painful, but they can be time consuming and may sometimes require multiple visits.”
