Root canals treat and preserve teeth with badly infected roots. The dental pulp is the live portion of the tooth that extends into the root and contains nerve endings and tissues. When the pulp is infected, patients can experience pain, swelling, and total tooth loss if they neglect to treat it appropriately. Root canals clean out the damaged parts of the tooth and infected roots. In some cases, an antibiotic will further help prevent infection within the tooth. The dentist or endodontist will then restore the remaining portion of the natural tooth using a cap or crown.
Root Canal Services and Procedures
Trembling is natural at the mere thought of a “root canal.” The thought of going through extreme pain and heavy cost leaves many numb. However, not many know what a “root canal” actually is! It is a straightforward procedure that relieves dental pain and protects your teeth from damage. A root canal is the treatment people choose when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth. An endodontist is a specialist that carefully removes the pulp inside the tooth, cleans, disinfects, and shapes the root canals, and places a filling to seal the space.
