Endodontics is just another way of saying root canal, but people tend to see or hear those words and want to run for the hills. It’s a shame these widely-used restorative treatments get such a bad wrap. Thanks to the advancements in dental technology and how we treat patients, root canals are no big deal. They’re very effective at helping patients struggling with:
- A painful, infected tooth that’s badly decayed or injured
- Chronic discomfort when you’re facing hot or cold temperature changes
- Danger of a tooth infection spreading to healthy teeth
Root canals involve removing part of your tooth’s pulp and nerve because they’re infected. We can easily remove the infection, clean your tooth, and prepare it for a filling or dental crown. The new restoration is going to ensure your tooth is protected from future damage and allow you to chew your food more comfortably! If you’ve got a painful tooth you need to be checked out, talk to us today about scheduling a consultation so we can take a look.
