What happens during a root canal? Dentists and specialists perform 25 million endodontic treatments, such as root canals, each year, according to the American Association of Endodontists (AAE). If you're one of the millions of Americans who need this endodontic service, take a look at what you need to know about the procedure. Will It Hurt? No, this procedure shouldn't hurt. Even though the dentist or endodontist will need to create a small hole in the affected tooth, remove the pulp (from inside of the tooth), clean the inner canal area, shape the canal, and fill the canal, anesthesia makes this procedure almost pain-free.
During my first pregnancy, I spent a lot of time pushing pillows behind my back trying to find comfort. As the size of the baby grew, so did my discomfort. By the time she was born, I was more than ready to give birth. When I found out I was pregnant again, I was determined that I would not suffer through the same discomforts. I started researching ways to ease the symptoms of pregnancy, including back pain. I created this blog to help other expectant moms find remedies to deal with those symptoms that can be emotionally and physically draining.
