Worry-Free Root Canals

Root canals are a common procedure, and they are not scary if you know what to expect. You likely need a root canal when tooth decay reaches the nerve or pulp of the tooth. In some cases, a general filling may solve the problem; however, we will recommend a root canal if the situation is more serious. During the procedure, you will be numb and should not feel any pain. A root canal removes the damaged nerve and tooth pulp, eliminating the possibility for pain later. If you are experiencing discomfort because of a tooth, call us for help immediately.

Why Do I Need a Tooth Extraction?

Most commonly, you will need a tooth extraction when the tooth is decayed beyond the point of restoration. A number of other scenarios lead to extractions:

  • The tooth is broken or fractured beyond repair.
  • A tooth filling is too large or deep and it cracks the tooth and causes an infection.
  • Tooth pulp or nerve is severely infected and a root canal does not solve the problem.
Every patient’s mouth is different. Your specific situation might be one of the above or you could fall into a different category. Our dental specialists will inform you of your options before we make a suggestion for treatment. We want our patients to make educated choices. Thanks to modern technology, there are many options for replacing a tooth after an extraction. Call to schedule an appointment with a root canal expert at our office!
