Endodontics, or Root Canals, are performed when the nerve of a tooth becomes infected. Your dental pulp, inside your tooth, houses your nerves. If the pulp becomes infected or damaged, it can cause pain and swelling. A root canal is done in effort to save the tooth by removing the infected pulp, without loosing the tooth structure.
Contrary to popular belief, a root canal treatment is not uncomfortable and is similar to having a filling done. It is usually completed in 1-2 appointments. Your tooth may feel tender for a few weeks following the procedure. After complete restoration, your tooth will function the same as your other teeth.
Endodontic treatment will help you maintain your natural teeth and smile.
