Root Canal Therapy
The dreaded root canal therapy. Most people dread hearing the news that they need a root canal. While root canal therapy is a common dental procedure to eliminate infections in the teeth, it continues to place a negative image in patients’ minds. However, patients can rest easy knowing our dentist offers the most comfortable, efficient experience possible when root canal therapy is needed.
What is Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal therapy is a procedure where a dentist removes bad bacteria from the pulp of a tooth. That bacteria forms inside of the tooth for many reasons. Poor dental health is one of the most common causes. Also, when someone does not fix a cracked tooth, it is easier for bad bacteria to enter and attack the tooth from the inside out. An untreated infection inside of a tooth makes it painful, discolored and could eventually lead to the loss of that tooth.
After root canal therapy is completed, you will have a better chance of preserving the original tooth. In some cases, you may need to have a crown placed on top of the affected tooth to cover up any imperfections or discoloration.
