Those who have never had a root canal before are probably nervous about what will happen. We’re here today to end those false ideas about root canal treatment for good. A root canal is a dental procedure done to heal and protect a tooth that has been hurt. The process itself is not nearly as scary as many people think it is, except that it needs to be done while you are asleep.
“I’m getting a crown today?!” I’ll never forget the joy in my patient's voice as I confirmed the treatment for his broken tooth. Excitement is an unusual emotion when I tell someone they need extensive dental treatment. That’s what Freedom Day is all about.
Fear of dental care is a common reason people avoid taking care of their teeth. Years of neglect can turn small problems into big challenges that require quite a bit of dentistry to get oral health back on track. We celebrate when we can turn a fearful person into a calm and trusting patient of Wynkoop Dentistry.
