Root Canals are PAINFUL!……. NOT. Yes, another patient fell asleep today while we did a root canal on him. Root canals seem so boring to most of our patients they literately fall asleep. My assistant has to puts a mouth pillow in their mouth so they can rest their jaw muscles in case they start snoring. They way, I can keep working. Especially when our patients listen to one of our CDs with headphones, it is good night and we will wake you up when we are done. Despite all the bad rumors, root canal therapy can be done painlessly, gets rid of infection, and can save your tooth from being extracted. Advanced techniques are really good now.
