Root Canals

Root canals are considered one of the most important dental treatments available today and can improve a patient’s long-term oral health in a number of ways. Typically, root canal procedures involve removing damaged areas or abscesses from within the teeth. This helps prevent further damage to the tooth and surrounding tissues as well as potentially saving it from extraction.

In some cases, infection or trauma can cause inflammation deep inside the roots of a tooth which damages the soft inner tissues called pulp. Without proper treatment, this can lead to severe pain and even bone loss around the affected area. A root canal procedure is designed to remove the damaged pulp before it results in additional complications such as this.

Furthermore, having an infected tooth removed can be an expensive process that may not even work if treatment isn’t done soon enough – whereas with a root canal you can save your natural tooth with minimal disruption to your everyday life! After completing a successful root canal patients often experience relief through lessening pain and discomfort associated with their original dental issue.

All in all root canal therapy is a safe and effective way to restore your smile while avoiding more costly alternatives like removal and replacement of teeth.
