Fifty years ago, if a dentist told you that you needed a root canal, it was really bad news for you. It meant you were in for a very painful and traumatic procedure, where the dentist drill open your tooth before using little metal instruments to ream out the inside of the tooth repeatedly. Needless to say, it hurt a lot and it was a very traumatic. Doesn’t that sound barbaric? Shockingly, that’s still how most dentists do root canals today.
But what if we told you there was a new, modern way that not only provided superior cleaning of the canals, but it was also totally painless?
