Find out if you’ve already mastered this topic or if you’re in need of some additional info with our quiz.

Quiz Questions: True or False?

  1. True or False: The reason you’re going to need a root canal treatment is the fact that it is too complicated to try to place a filling.
  2. True or False: You might experience discomfort during your root canal but it isn’t anything that will be severe.
  3. True or False: If you choose to procrastinate or avoid a root canal altogether, your tooth will simply fall out.

Quiz Answers

  1. False. You need a root canal treatment because something is wrong with your dental pulp (which lines in the inner body of your tooth) and the only way to save your tooth is to remove the pulp.
  2. False. Your root canal will be comfortable. In addition to beginning the procedure only once the area is numb, we may also provide you with nitrous oxide, so you feel fully at ease throughout the entire procedure.
  3. False. Some very severe complications may arise if this is your decision. A ruptured abscess and spread of infection can occur, for instance. Avoid side effects that threaten your oral and overall health by agreeing to restorative care.
