A root canal, or endodontic procedure, helps to save the tooth from needing extraction. Teeth contain pulp inside which nourishes the tooth surrounding it, giving it life. If tooth decay sets in, the pulp inside the tooth can become damaged. Symptoms that pulp may be inflamed and need a root canal procedure include sensitivity to heat and cold. Root canals clean up the inside of the tooth and remove the infected pulp, which saves the entire tooth from needing extraction. Before your root canal, we provide evaluation and diagnosis of oral pain and schedule surgery for endodontics and treatment of damaged teeth, teeth with decay from cavities, fractured and dislodged teeth. Today’s dental technology allows for root canals to be painless and without discomfort.
A root canal can usually save the tooth, but if the root canal fails, treatment may involve extraction of the tooth.
