The 411: Root Canals
Do you know why root canal procedures are done? A root canal is done to repair a very badly infected or damaged tooth. It can also be done as an alternative to tooth extraction. When a root canal is done, the dentist removes an area of the tooth known as the pulp. It is cleaned out and then the tooth is resealed. Although root canals have a reputation for being painful; today, dental advancements have improved the treatment to have little or no pain at all. If cared for properly, the root canal treatment can last a lifetime. It has a high success rate and is usually more cost effective than an extraction followed by a bridge or implant.
