Endodontists highlight technology for Root Canal Awareness Week

March 16, 2016 Root Canal Awareness Week logo
In celebrating Root Canal Awareness Week’s 10th anniversary, observed March 27-April 2, the American Association of Endodontists hopes to dispel fears of root canal treatment with a nationwide effort to educate patients about endodontics.

According to a survey by the AAE, 67 percent say fear of pain concerns them most about having root canal treatment.

“Endodontists, the root canal specialists, devote their practice to root canal treatment and related procedures,” said Dr. Terryl A. Propper, AAE president, in a statement AAE released for Root Canal Awareness Week. “We use technologies like microscopes, digital and 3-D imaging and ultrasonics to diagnose and treat our patients quickly, comfortably and successfully.”
