How are root canals typically done? Dentists use barbed files (like the one in this photo) to pull out the nerve tissue. That process is extremely painful, no matter what they tell you. Then they tooth is soaked in bleach, but this doesn’t always kill all the bacteria in your tooth… so you’ll likely need another root canal later on.
If this sounds like something from the dark ages, well, that’s is usually how it’s still done at most dentists today.
Do YOU want your root canal done this way?
Wouldn’t you rather have it done the modern way – using lasers and ozone clean out the debris and bring the tooth to a point of near-sterilization? It also has the small benefit of being almost completely painless.
