What is root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment removes the inner pulp that houses the tissues, blood supply, and nerves of the tooth. Pain is what often brings our patients in for an examination, and root canal treatment is the answer. The only alternative to root canal therapy is extraction of the tooth, which is never the way to go unless absolutely necessary. If the tooth is beyond repair, this may be suggested, but only as a last chance effort to bring the smile back to health and functionality.
What might result in the need for root canal therapy?
Toothaches are often the first indication of a problem.
Patients come into our practice for an evaluation to determine why they are in pain. During the examination, the dentist will often find an issue within the tooth which may be a large cavity, infection, or disease that has reached the dental pulp. The two options available are root canal therapy or extraction. Root canal therapy is often the first choice over extraction and restoration.
