The sun is shining, the snow is starting to melt, and…ow! My tooth is killing me! It’s not just the first real week of spring, it’s Root Canal Awareness Week too! The good people over at the American Association of Endodontists (AAE) started Root Canal Awareness Week to raise awareness for endodontists everywhere, so that general dentists and patients know that they should contact a specialist when it’s time to get that dreaded root canal procedure.

I say “dreaded” but in reality root canal treatments have come a long way, and aren’t something to fear like Saturday morning cartoons in the 80s and 90s would have us believe. Getting a root canal and removing the inflamed or infected pulp inside of the tooth saves a lot of long term tooth pain and your entire smile. Endodontists truly play a valuable role in the dental world, and root canal specialists that look out for their patients with top-quality care and a little bit of compassion for the ones still nervous about the procedure deserve recognition.

The AAE encourages dental professionals to print and share their Root Canal Awareness Week Poster. to show support. For more information about the AAE visit

  1. Root canals don’t have to be scary! It’s a helpful procedure for the mouth that can help enhance your mouth’s health. Not only that, but the procedures have come a long way. They’re a lot easier to execute and recovery time is greatly minimized.

  2. Such a common misconception that root canal procedures case a great deal of pain– in most cases, you’re not going to feel anything at all.

  3. Great poster and great article (even though I´m a little late). Those cartoons I´ve thought about it many times. havieng painfull teeth fixed is not a scary thing it´s a relief.
