Root Canals Offer Pain Relief for Infected Teeth

Root canal therapy is often the only solution to save a severely infected or decayed tooth. Once the inner pulp is affected, it must be removed to save the tooth. Root canals involve removing the cusp or top of the tooth to access the inner canal. The pulp, infection and decay within the canal are removed and the inner tooth is disinfected. Once cleaned, the tooth is packed with sterile dental materials and the cusp is sealed. A dental crown is usually recommended to protect the tooth from future damage.

Many people associate root canals with pain, but the procedure has advanced extensively in recent years. With new technology, the procedure can be completed in just one or two visits to our office and very little discomfort is felt as the tooth heals. For many, stopping the infection that was causing pain is a huge relief, plus the tooth and their smile is kept intact.
