Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is a treatment sequence for the infected pulp of a tooth which is intended to result in the elimination of infection and the protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion.

Root Canal Procedure

Root canal treatment is virtually painless and often leaves you with less discomfort during recovery than if you have your natural tooth extracted. Thanks to modern techniques and effective anesthesia, patients who experience root canals are six times more likely to describe it as painless than patients who have a tooth extracted!

WHY DO I NEED A ROOT CANAL?

It’s necessary to have endodontic or root canal treatment when the inside of your tooth (the pulp) becomes inflamed or infected as a result of deep decay, repeated dental procedures, faulty crowns or a crack or chip in the tooth.

BENEFITS OF A ROOT CANAL

One of the biggest benefits of root canal treatment is that it gets rid of pain and infection in the mouth. The root canal relieves pressure from inflammation in the pulp of the tooth and within a day or two after treatment, patients can get back to living their lives, without tooth pain.

DISADVANTAGES

A root canal procedure is so much more expensive than a tooth extraction. When you are going through a very debilitating toothache, you are given the choice to get a root canal or a tooth extraction, and a tooth extraction will relieve you of the pain, without requiring too much in terms of money.
