Why You Shouldn’t Dread Your Root Canal

Root canal therapy has gotten a bad and very misfortunate reputation. Many patients wince at the thought of getting a root canal, despite the dental pain they may be already feeling at the time. The truth is, a root canal is a time-tested endodontic treatment that can not only bring you out of pain, but save your dying tooth. Most importantly, there is nothing to fear about the procedure itself.

Root canals are recommended for patients who have an infected tooth. When bacteria is allowed to penetrate the inner pulp of the tooth (either due to severe decay or other tooth damage), then the nerves and livelihood of the tooth becomes compromised. A root canal is performed to remove the infected tooth pulp and sanitize the inner canals to eradicate lingering bacteria. The inside of the tooth is then filled with a special filling material to prevent further infection.

If you have been told you need a root canal, don’t dread or put off the procedure. Learn these truths about root canal therapy and schedule your appointment sooner rather than later:

Root Canals are Not Painful

Contrary to popular belief, getting a root canal is no more painful that getting a dental filling. Thanks to modern anesthetics, sedation dentistry and more calculated techniques, the discomfort is very minimal compared to the pain you’ve been enduring from an infected tooth.

Root Canals Bring Quick Relief

There’s nothing worse than tooth pain. If you have an infected tooth, you are likely finding it difficult to eat, sleep or even concentrate. When the infection is removed during a root canal, your pain can instantly be eliminated as well.

Root Canals are Cheaper Than Extractions in the Long Run

Many people falsely assume that extracting the infected tooth is the better and more affordable option. While it is true that your pain can be relieved in this way, the long-term consequences should be considered. When a tooth goes missing, it should always be replaced. This typically involves a bridge or dental implant, which will end up causing you much more in time and expense than a simple root canal procedure.

At Riverwood Dental, we take pride in our ability to provide painless root canals to save dying and infected teeth. We use advanced technology and experienced techniques to ensure your natural smile is restored and preserved in the best ways possible. If you are suffering the pain of an infected tooth, please call our office today to get the relief you need and deserve.

Visited Riverwood Dental for the first time. Great experience. Would definitely recommend.

I called them when I was in serious pain from a previous dentist office who gave me a deep filling right over my tooth nerve :(. I was in serious pain. Dr. Mansouri and his team took the time to take x-rays and give me a full consultation on what was causing me so much pain. He referred me to an amazing endodontist, Yanina F., but the next appt they had was for a couple weeks out and I was in too much pain. I ended up having my molar extracted by another facility who did a great job, and now feel sooo much better. I am so grateful for the kindness and care that Dr Mansouri and his entire team showed to me. Great dental office with people who actually care. Thank you so much!!!
Shanta K.

Ashley F.
This was by far the best experience with a dental office I have ever had! The staff was amazing. They explained everything in detail and made conversation to connect with me during my visit so I didn't feel awkward or like I was just another patient in for a routine office visit. The views are fabulous and the office is cheery, bright, nice and very clean. I will not be going anywhere else!
Shahnas H.
Dr. Mansouri and the staff are great. First, the entire staff is well trained, courteous and professional. The office is impeccably clean, and you get to watch a movie while you get your cleaning!

Dr. Mansouri himself is the real reason to visit the dentist. His precision and his techniques are pain free! The prices are reasonable and he takes insurance. Highly recommended!!!
Ted A.

Karen P.
I have been searching for the right dental practice for me for over 10 years but didn't find one that I vibed with or trusted too much. But Mansouri Family Dental Care was everything I was looking for and more! The staff were extremely friendly. They explained everything that I needed to know about my dental health and made me feel as though they really cared about my teeth and well-being.
I'm so happy that I found my family dentist for life!

It's been over 9 months since my last cleaning, all my own fault. But the other day I went in for a deep cleaning and my hygienist was so diligent and efficient! She made sure she got all of my teeth and gave me a goody bag filled with new dental supplies so that I can keep up with my hygiene!

Dr. Micheal is a funny man! Him and his wife are so humble. Their office staff are also sweet people, they're like a big friendly family! My husband and I love going there.
Shan M.
I've been to a lot of dentists over the years ever since my favorite dentist retired. It has been a long search for someone to who has mastered the professional trade of dentistry, the people skills to help a patient feel comfortable, and the office/staff recruitment, training, and management know-how. When you think about it, it's an awful lot for one person to figure it all out and handle. And Dentistry isn't like so many other 9-5 jobs. There's a lot at stake with someone's smile in the balance. But at Mansouri's Dental Care and associates is definitely worth the stop by
Sarah J.

Rachel G.
Dr. Mansouri did and amazing job putting veneers for my front teeth. He is a perfectionist and he really enjoys what he is doing. My smile is now perfect. Thank you Dr. Mansouri!!!
Ana H.
From the first call to the first visit, I received nothing more then excellent treatment. I described my fear of going to the dentist over the phone and was remember when I arrived. Scared out of my mind, the Hygienist took Great care of me. I have periodontal gum disease and have always needed numbing to get my type of cleaning. But not this day! He told me, relax I got you and that he did. No numbing meds needed not to mention the level of discomfort was very minimal. Afterwards, Dr. Azita came to examine my teeth and I was amazed at the difference she made in my visit. I am so excited to be apart of the Mansouri Family Dental Care, I'm referring any and everyone to this Beautiful office that overlooks the city during your treatment. Thank you and YES...I'm coming back!

After getting pushed into a bunch of unnecessary procedures at a dental office in north Cobb, I found Dr. Mansouri. They are so diligent in their work! They reassured me that they could fix the damages the other dentist made and make sure my insurance covers it!

Kudos and the highest recommendation to Dr. Maansour and everyone at Cosmetic Family & Implant Dentistry.
