What is a Root Canal and How Can It Help You?

If your teeth are causing you trouble, then a root canal may give you relief. Discover how routine root canals are helping to relieve and rescue smiles.

Root Canals Save Teeth

The first question that many ask is, “What is a root canal?” Root canals are affordable dental care remedies that both soothe and save millions of teeth each and every year. They are extremely common treatments that may be performed by a dentist, or you may be referred to a specialist in endodontics. Endodontics treats the soft pulp in the interior of the tooth. This pulp contains nerves and the blood vessels supporting the tooth. If the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, then root canals are required to remove all of damaged pulp and save the tooth from further trouble. Once the tooth is thoroughly cleaned, it is filled and sealed with a rubber-like substance. Then, a crown is placed on the tooth to restore it to full function.

Reasons for Root Canals

Root canals can treat an array of dental problems caused by the following:

  • Dental decay
  • A crack or chip in a tooth
  • Poorly-placed crowns
  • Extensive prior dental work
  • Trauma to the tooth

A root canal is an affordable dental care treatment that can save you the time, money, and pain of dealing with later dental problems. It’s ironic that root canals are often thought to be painful procedures. The truth is that root canals feel similar to getting a filling. This endodontics treatment allows you to preserve your natural teeth and maintain a healthy smile for life.
