The mere mention of a root canal can make many people shudder. It seems to be a universal assumption that this therapy is a tortuous affair. Maybe it’s because most people begin root canal treatment with a pre-existing toothache, which may be how root canals got their horrible reputation. Toothaches can be a painful experience, but root canal therapy can get you out of pain and back to your normal routine quickly and with very little discomfort.
Benefits of Root Canal Therapy
Tender gums, abscesses, and acute dental sensitivity are all eliminated with this treatment. Your dentist removes the inflamed nerves inside the tooth to relieve the pain, and save the tooth structure.
This conservative treatment benefits your oral health in numerous ways, including:
- Stop toothaches.
- Prevent the spread of infection.
- Restore function to teeth with extensive damage.
- Prevent a tooth extraction.
- Save you from elaborate and costly tooth loss treatment.
