Root Canal Therapy – Writing A Whole New Story You’ll Love
A root canal is often referred to as one of the worst things you can experience, but we’re happy to say that it’s not as bad as they say. Decades ago, root canal therapy was very painful, but with today’s medical advances and local anesthetics, most people have little to no pain during the procedure.
Tooth canal therapy is a way to save an existing tooth, so you don’t have to extract it and replace it with an implant or a bridge. If you need this procedure, you probably already have significant tooth pain and are looking for relief. A root canal relieves pain and makes your tooth healthy again.
How do you know if you need root canal therapy? If you have severe pain in your teeth, especially when biting or chewing, that’s a sign. A chipped or cracked tooth, swollen or tender gums, and deep decay in your teeth are other signals.
What can you expect from a root canal?
- A relatively painless process
- Complete in one or two appointments
- Effective pain relief and the ability to use your natural tooth
There are a lot of benefits to having a root canal to save your natural teeth. You’ll have a normal bite, effective chewing, and a natural appearance. You don’t have to worry about how a tooth implant or bridge will look because you won’t need one! Keeping your natural tooth helps protect your oral health and other teeth.
