A root canal procedure can be helpful when the nerve of a person's tooth is affected by infection or extended decay. To save the affected tooth, we can remove the pulp (living tissue inside of the tooth), bacteria, nerves, and decay. We fill the resulting area with medicated dental materials that restores the tooth to its full function.
A root canal procedure is usually predictable and successful. As with all dental treatments proper oral hygiene and routine dental check-ups help to achieve the best long term success.
Saving a person's natural tooth with root canal therapy has many advantages:
Protects other teeth from excessive wear or strain
Normal biting force and sensation
There are some common symptoms that may lead to the possibility of root canal therapy:
An abscess (or pimple) on the gums
Sensitivity to hot and cold
Severe toothache pain
Swelling and/or tenderness
On occasion, no symptoms are present
Regular dental exams can help prevent advanced dental issues.
