What Is A Root Canal?
If a tooth has become infected or heavily damaged, you may need a procedure called a root canal. During a root canal, your dentist will gently clean out the inside of your tooth, removing the infected tissue to prevent further damage or bacterial growth. Once the tooth is completely clean, your dentist will pack it and seal it with a filling or a crown. This protects your existing tooth, relieves pain, and keeps the infection from spreading to the surrounding teeth or gums.
When Do I Need Root Canal Therapy?
If you are experiencing ongoing dental pain or discomfort, we suggest coming in for an exam as soon as possible. If your tooth is infected, your dentist will likely recommend a root canal. An infected tooth often occurs because of a cavity that has been ignored for too long or damage to the tooth. A root canal procedure will quickly ease your discomfort and prevent your tooth from risking further damage and needing an extraction.
