A common technique for root canal treatment is using the drill-and-light technology. In this technique, the dentist uses a drill to bore a small hole in your tooth’s root canal so that the root canal can be extracted without causing any pain to you. The pain will almost immediately disappear once the drill is removed. This is one of the modern techniques used most often nowadays.
Laser dentistry is another popular method used for root canal treatment today. The laser is used to kill the bacteria that cause dental decay. The pain caused by this treatment is mild to moderate and can be treated with over-the-counter painkillers. The cost of this treatment is higher than the other techniques used but it has become more widely accepted due to the availability of modern techniques.
