Tooth decay, when caught early, can usually be fixed with a simple filling, however, when the tooth or nerves become infected down inside the tooth, the only way to save the tooth is through pain free root canal therapy.
Pain Free Root Canal Therapy Can Stop the Pain and Save Your Tooth
The knee-jerk reaction to hearing the words, “root canal therapy,” is that it will be a painful experience. The truth is, however, with modern sedation techniques and technology, root canal therapy can be done pain-free, it can save the tooth, and it can stop the pain caused by an infected nerve.
What is Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal therapy begins by numbing the entire area around the tooth and the nerves. The next step is to create a small access hole where the infectious tissue is then removed with specialized tools. A filling is inserted into the tooth roots and then sealed off with an adhesive cement. This is to help prevent re-infection of the tooth. Once the root canal therapy is completed, a dental crown is placed over the tooth to restore its appearance and provide integrity against cracking.
