How Root Canals Help You

The Benefits of Root Canals

Root canals are a treatment to save or repair a tooth that has become infected or badly decayed. During this procedure the pulp and nerve of the tooth are removed, and the inside is cleaned out and sealed to prevent any further infection or damage. A root canal can help prevent abscesses from forming, which happens if the tooth is left untreated and becomes infected. If you experience pain while eating or putting pressure on the area you might need this treatment. Always consult with your dentist before undergoing any treatment.

Root canals can help you in many ways. First and most importantly it can help you live a pain free life again. If you are experiencing constant tooth pain this treatment can help. It allows you to keep the natural tooth, so you don’t need an extraction. Additionally, it is usually the less expensive treatment. Since root canals are simple procedures it doesn’t take much time and can be done in one office visit like a filling or regular check-up. Along with giving you a pain free mouth it can also improve the appearance of the tooth and help it to look natural.
