Root Canal (Endodontics)
Endodontics is the name for dentistry that deals with the nerves of the teeth. When a tooth becomes infected, it usually involves nerves in the tooth’s root, which often need to be removed. If the issue is left untreated, the infection can turn into an abscess, which is a far more serious condition and can even lead to bone loss.
Unfortunately, “root canal” is a term that causes a lot of fear and anxiety, thanks to its portrayal in popular culture, but the truth is that the benefits of the procedure and advances in dental technology have made the procedure much more comfortable. In most cases, local anesthetics and proper pain medication allow the procedure to be performed with no pain. Most importantly, the procedure will relieve you from pain caused by the infection, allowing you to once again enjoy all the foods you love without any pain from heat, cold, or biting too hard. To learn more about whether a root canal is right for you, just give us a call.
