Root Canal

Root canal treatment is one of the most misunderstood procedures that we do. The mere mention of the word makes many cringe, but, when indicated can give you instant relief from pain. Try to remember that many times a tooth is hurting so badly before people seek treatment that the root canal gets blamed for the healing process instead of blaming the actual cause or procrastination of treatment.

A root canal is not the removal of the root. It is simply the cleaning out of the tiny nerve tunnels that travel up from the bottom of the root.  Many root canals provide instant relief from pain caused by abcessed or exposed nerves from fractured or badly decayed teeth. Many teeth that require a root canal will also need a crown to protect the weakened tooth after treatment.
