In my practice, I perform most endodontic (root canal) procedures — but after years of experience and a policy of accompanying my patients to specialists and observing procedures first hand — my background is solid. When I occasionally run into a problem, I again accompany the patient to a specialist.
Root canal therapy is often not as bad as its general reputation. Many times it can be completed in one appointment and in a painless manner. Patients can relax with headphones or watch virtual reality or movies.
