Hello,you need not worry about root canal therapy as the treatment procedure is done under local anesthesia which causes numbness to your tooth.By this treatment ,you can save the tooth instead of removal.

A root canal procedure is always done under local anesthesia. So, you will have no pain during your treatment. Also, get your treatment done as early as possible. Please do not worry. Dentist's are not as scary as the world projects them to be. :)

Any dental procedure in today's times is absolutely painless.... procedures like root canal treatment are done under local anaesthesia and hence you will not have any pain during the treatment..... you should not be so apprehensive and should actually concentrate on getting this treatment done as soon as possible so that this problem should not aggravate further and this tooth can be saved from extraction.... Regards....

You need not worry on your root canal treatment. And root canal is the procedure that will save your tooth, other option is tooth removal which isn't advisable until the tooth has been broken to your gum level that is only if root part is remaining.
If your doctor has advised root canal it is the best treatment you can get for that particular tooth.
Root canal is pain reliving process, With it the pain which you are going through will definitely decrease.

Hello there,  we have been doing root canals since 30 years now.  It's basically a painless procedure.  Plz watch YouTube videos for getting ur fear out.  Even the injection does not pain since the site is numbed by a gel or spray so u don't feel the needle prick.  Relax.  Chant a mantra and sit on the dental chair with faith.  Feel free to consult Laser Smile Care Centre. God bless u.

If dentist advised u to go for rct than u have to go for it one day...can't escape from rct...because tooth will pain a lot ..started with unbearable pain..ultimately swelling will appear....
For time being U can escape from rct only by having some antibiotics and pain killer. But one day ultimately u have to go for rct...
Rct is pain full in acute stage but it is pain less in chronic stage..we have to see in which condition your tooth is..
Need not to worry..go ahead for rct..the day u start with rct u will feel so relaxed..pain will vanish ,u feel so good...good luck...go for Rct.....

Take Ketorol DT 2tab dissolved in water following one tab twice daily for three days.... And go by advice of your Dentist.... Nowadays RCT can be avoided using Dental Lasers... Since many dentist are not doing this.. And RCT if required is
done in single visit that too painless.....
