If you hear that you need a root canal, you may experience some unwarranted concern. In truth, this is a common procedure that can alleviate the need for extraction.
Sometimes tooth damage is not visible on the surface. When nerves and soft tissue inside of the tooth are damaged, a root canal may be necessary. The procedure is simple and most report that it is no more painful than getting a filling. It entails the removal of damaged or infected pulp within the tooth. The inside of the tooth is then cleaned and sealed. A simple procedure that can end your pain and discomfort!
The best choice for your oral health is retaining a natural tooth whenever possible. Ask the team at Nichols Family Dentistry if endodontic care may help you towards this goal.
