The common misconception is that Root canal is only used for tooth repair. However, for those suffering from infection or decay, root canal can be used to save the tooth as well. It involves removing the nerve and pulp, followed by the cleaning and sealing of the tooth. This helps prevent infection and formation of abscesses.

Another common misconception we have observed is that Root canal procedure is extremely painful. And although there is usually some discomfort, it’s similar to what people experience while having a filling placed.
