You don’t want a root canal, and many people have anxiety about this procedure. The reality is that this treatment is needed in many cases and is beneficial for patients with infected teeth.
Our team at Dossett Dental wants you to know why you should schedule this appointment.
It Ends Your Toothache
Despite what you may have seen on movies or television shows, root canals don’t cause pain as much as they end it. If your tooth is infected, it is likely to cause a toothache. By getting a root canal, you remove the infected tissue, which allows the pain to go away.
It Saves Your Tooth
Some people just want to remove a tooth when it is painful. That is necessary when the tooth is beyond repair. However, if a tooth can be saved, that is the better option for you. A root canal can be the last step before an extraction is required.
It Restores the Function of Your Tooth
To complete your procedure, you will get a dental crown to cap your tooth. This gives you the appearance of a natural tooth and allows you to bite and chew again as well.
