You will most likely need a root canal if your tooth becomes compromised by a large cavity, trauma, or severe gum disease. If the damage continues, it can reach the inner portion of your tooth where the nerves are located. The results can be intense discomfort, and a root canal becomes necessary to relieve the pain and save the tooth.
The Trust About Root Canals
Many people still have the mistaken impression that a root canal is something to dread. In reality, dental techniques and technology have improved so much that a root canal today is no more complicated than having a tooth pulled.
During the procedure, the material inside the canal is gently cleared away with state-of-the-art instruments, and the area is disinfected and sealed. A dental crown is usually recommended to strengthen and protect the tooth from further damage.
