Many people undergo root canal treatment to save teeth which have been badly damaged or infected. Root canal treatment is a procedure that involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning the root canal and then filling and sealing the tooth. The pulp of a tooth consists of  blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues that help the tooth root grow during development. However,  a fully developed tooth can survive without the pulp because at that point, it gets its necessary nourishment from the surrounding tissues. 

Despite  the long-standing joke about how painful the root canal procedure is,  you can actually expect this procedure to be a comfortable experience, both during and after your appointment. Root canal treatment is similar to having a routine filling and can usually be completed in just one or two visits to our office.

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

The many benefits of saving a tooth with root canal treatment includes:

  • Pain Relief - Root canal treatment will eliminate the pain of having an infected, aching tooth.
  • Preserve Your Smile - A root canal can help you avoid having to extract the affected tooth.
  • Protects Your Other Teeth - Saving a tooth with root canal treatment can protect your other teeth from excessive wear and strain
  • Better Oral & Overall Health - Once the infection is eliminated following a root canal, your oral health will improve. You will also be preserving your overall health as no bacteria from the infected tooth can travel via the bloodstream to other parts of the body.
