Root canals are a vital procedure in restorative dentistry that can help save a severely damaged or infected tooth from extraction.
Understanding Root Canals
Misconceptions about Root Canals
Root canals have gained a reputation for being painful and unpleasant. However, advancements in dental techniques, anesthesia, and technology have significantly improved patient comfort during the procedure. Most patients report feeling little to no pain during a root canal, and the procedure is often comparable to having a routine dental filling.
Importance of Timely Treatment
Seeking timely treatment for a tooth requiring a root canal is crucial. Delaying treatment can lead to severe pain, abscess formation, and potential tooth loss. By addressing the underlying infection or damage promptly, you increase the likelihood of preserving your natural tooth and avoiding more extensive and costly dental procedures in the future.
