Root Canal Treatment

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is a dental procedure that relieves pain caused by an infected or abscessed tooth. During the root canal process, the inflamed pulp is removed. The surfaces inside the tooth are then cleaned and disinfected, and a filling is placed to seal the space.

What are the benefits of root canal treatment?

One of the worst things to ever experience is a throbbing toothache. The discomfort can distract you from work. Not only can it devastate your productivity, but it can also ruin whatever time you have to relax. Most of the pain actually associated with a root canal is not the procedure itself or the recovery, it’s the pain caused by the infected dental pulp inside your tooth beforehand. A root canal actually involves cleaning away the damaged nerves and bacteria that are causing all this pain and soothes your toothache. A variety of anesthesia options are also available during your procedure to make it a virtually painless experience. 

Everyone loves an ice cold drink on a hot summer’s day or a warm bowl of soup on a cold winter’s night, but infected or inflamed teeth can make this a painful experience. A great benefit of root canal therapy is that the procedure removes these damaged nerves, so you can get back to enjoying the foods you love. 

The infection in the dental pulp chamber of your tooth is not just going to stop at a single tooth. It can spread to other teeth or other parts of the body, further destroying your smile and oral health. When patients forgo root canal treatments they are likely to experience swelling, pain, and further infections of their teeth, gums, and other tissue in your mouth. This infection can even affect your overall health, and in some cases, be life threatening if left untreated. 

The goal of a root canal is to save your tooth, not replace it. While dental prosthetics may be able to restore some of the strength of your missing teeth, nothing will ever look, feel, or function like your natural teeth. So if you want to continue eating the foods you love without changing the appearance of your smile, a root canal is probably your best option. 

Did you know that your teeth actually help to support each other? When a tooth is removed or falls out due to decay it can cause the surrounding healthy teeth to shift, affecting your ability to properly chew and ruin your smile. Imagine not being able to eat your favorite foods because you can’t chew them anymore! A major root canal benefit is that the procedure aims to remove as little of your natural tooth as possible and actually save it, so you can continue chewing your favorite foods to your heart’s content.
