Study: Root canal therapy can reduce pain on multiple levels
Root canal therapy can reduce multiple dimensions of pain, including intensity, duration and its interference with daily activity, according to a new practice-based research network study in the Journal of Endodontics. While a number of studies have looked at root canal's effect on pain intensity, the procedure's effect on other dimensions of pain has not been examined, according to lead study author Alan S. Law, DDS, Ph.D., from the division of endodontics at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, and colleagues.
