Root Canal Facts and Statistics

At Cascade Endodontics in Orem UT, we know the urban myth of the scary root canal can mean that people are hesitant to visit their dentist when they obviously need one. We also recognize that, due to this, information on root canals is scarcely researched by patients.

We want to alleviate your fears: root canals are no more painful than most modern dentistry procedures. In order to educate our patients on the benefits of early, effective endodontics, we have put together a list of statistics concerning root canals.

The Facts

  • 25 million root canals are performed each year. This should make it clear how common and useful the procedure can be!
  • 15 percent of people pass up treatment due to root canal fears. Don’t let this be you! With our anesthesia and sedation options, you won’t feel a thing.
  • More than 95 % of root canals are successful. With such an effective option to prevent further tooth decay and pain, it really doesn’t make much sense to put it off.
  • A root canal is often used to treat decay and prevent further damage to enamel. Because of this, they are absolutely critical in maintaining good oral health that lasts a lifetime.
