Root canals are one of the most common dental procedures performed. Sometimes, decay or disease affects the tooth deeply, all the way down to the nerve tissue. When this occurs, root canal treatment is the only way to save the natural tooth.
When the pulp of the tooth (the inner part that contains soft tissues, nerves, and blood vessels) is damaged, the whole tooth is at risk. It causes pain and threatens the smile and the whole body with infection. Without treatment, the tooth will complicate your health and eventually fall out on its own.
There’s a way to avoid the pitfalls of deep dental damage, and that’s root canal therapy. You will be pleasantly surprised to find that root canals are simple and comfortable. By undergoing a root canal, you avoid pain and tooth extraction.
Why Would I Need a Root Canal?
Pulp damage can be caused by many things, such as:
- Trauma to the tooth
- Untreated tooth decay
- Cracks and chips
- Repeated dental procedures
This type of dental damage results in symptoms like:
- Severe pain
- Swelling of the surrounding gums
- Sensitivity to temperature
If you believe your smile may need attention, don’t wait to contact your dentist.
