What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is a dental treatment that saves an infected or damaged tooth. We remove the damaged or infected pulp (the soft tissue inside the tooth), clean the tooth’s interior, and seal it with filling. Root canals are necessary when infection or injury threatens a tooth. This safe, effective procedure preserves natural teeth, bone structure, and smile alignment. 

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment:

There are many benefits of root canal treatment that are worth consideration: 

  • Pain Relief: One of the primary benefits of root canal therapy is the relief of pain and discomfort caused by an infected tooth. We remove the problematic infection and seal the tooth from further decay.
  • Save Your Natural Tooth: Root canal treatment saves a tooth that would otherwise be lost. By preserving the natural tooth, patients can avoid the need for more invasive tooth replacement options such as dental implants or bridges.
  • Restore Normal Chewing and Biting: This durable, effective treatment allows you to enjoy your favorite foods and beverages again. Life will continue as usual with no life-altering changes. 
  • Improves Oral Health: Infected or damaged teeth can harm oral health, leading to more serious dental issues if left untreated. By addressing the root cause of the problem, root canal therapy can improve oral health and prevent more significant dental issues in the future.
  • Cost-Effective: Root canal treatment is often more cost-effective than tooth extraction and replacement. By preserving the natural tooth, you can avoid unexpected costs and invest in an enduring solution to tooth pain.
  • Aesthetic Benefits: A restored tooth improves the appearance of a smile, especially when front teeth are involved. Root canal therapy can also prevent further discoloration and avoid the need for additional cosmetic dental procedures.
  • Efficient Treatment: Root canals are typically completed in one or two appointments and are considered a relatively quick and efficient treatment option.
  • Long-Lasting Results: Root canal therapy has a high success rate and can provide long-lasting results. With proper care, a restored tooth can last a lifetime.
  • Less Invasive than Tooth Extraction: Root canal treatment is a less invasive option than a tooth extraction, which requires the removal of the entire tooth. Only the damaged or infected pulp is removed with root canals, leaving the rest of the natural tooth intact.
  • Relieves Overall Health Issues: Infected teeth can sometimes cause other health problems in the body, such as headaches and fever. Resolving the dental issue with root canal therapy can improve overall health.
