It’s Root Canal Awareness Week! May 3rd through May 9 is 2020’s designated week, which is a national effort to raise awareness of endodontists. The American Association of Endodontists (AAE) started Root Canal Awareness week with the intention of educating the public about the benefits that can come from seeing an endodontist and debunking the myth that root canals should be feared.
We all know the negative connotation that is connected to root canals, but what you might not know: root canals are not as rough as they used to be. With the advancement in technology, the root canal treatment process is becoming more like a routine filling.
Endodontists have been working for years to help ease the common fear that root canals bring to patients every day. Today, the root canal process is less painful and more convenient. As a part of Root Canal Awareness Week, the AAE has created a couple of promotional and informational videos about root canal history, root canal procedures, and endodontists.
