Root Canals: Myths vs. Reality

March 26, 2009

Root Canal Awareness Week – March 29-April 4, 2009

Sponsored by the American Association of Endodontists (AAE), Root Canal Awareness Week aims to dispel myths about the procedure, reduce anxiety, and highlight the importance of endodontists.

Patients need to understand that root canals actually relieve tooth pain and are much more comfortable today thanks to new technology and specialized training.

AAE has created a planning guide for this event which includes suggested activities, printable posters and logos, patient handouts, and tips for working with the media.

Bibby library has provided a list of resources on Root Canals, including a link to the latest review articles as indexed in PubMed and resources for patients.
