Ironically, that same percentage also fears root canal treatment, the exact procedure that can save their pearly whites. During its fifth annual Root Canal Awareness Week, March 27-April 2, the AAE will reach out to the public to help dispel the myth that root canals are painful, as well as recognize the importance of endodontists and general dentists as partners in patient care.
