A Colorado Springs Dentist Discusses Misconceptions About Root Canals


If you ask people to rate the pain of a toothache from a scale of 1 to 10, many would probably give it an 8 or 9–and quite a few will give it a 10. As they say, it’s the type of hurt that can make grown men cry. The intense discomfort has a lot to do with human anatomy; long story short, your teeth are connected to the trigeminal nerve, a type of cranial nerve that’s directly patched to the brain instead of to the spinal cord, which makes the facial area an especially sensitive region.

In many cases, though, toothaches are associated with cavities or infections that can be effectively treated by a trusted dentist in Colorado, Springs. However, when the infection reaches the tooth’s pulp–its blood and nerve supply–the only way to rid the pain is to undergo a root canal treatment.
