Root Canal Therapy Can Help Save Your Tooth

ROOT CANAL THERAPY (a root canal) is a common procedure that can restore an infected tooth to its natural function and appearance. Despite popular myths, it’s typically no more painful than filling a cavity.

A Root Canal May Be Necessary For Deep Infections

If a cavity is deep enough it can become infected and spread to the nerves in the root of your tooth. Left untreated, the cavity can become an abscess and may even lead to bone loss in your jaw as well as other health problems.

Cracked or damaged teeth (where your tooth’s nerves are exposed) may also require a root canal.

A Root Canal Can Keep You Healthy

When we perform a root canal, we clear your tooth’s canals of bacteria and infected tissue and then dry and seal them. Often, a crown is placed over your tooth for further protection. This can prevent infections from spreading to other areas and can help keep you and your smile healthy.

There’s No Need To Be Nervous About A Root Canal

Root canal therapy is one of the most common dental procedures—nearly 16 million are performed in the United States alone each year. Don’t let root canal hearsay frighten you. Today, with safe and effective anesthesia, precise tools, and incredible imaging technology a root canal doesn’t have to be painful—in fact, it relieves pain.
