See What a Root Canal Can Do for You
Root canals are probably my very favorite thing in dentistry. There is nothing more rewarding than getting someone out of pain. When a patient is in pain they’re distraught, they’re upset, they’re hurting, oftentimes they haven’t slept and being able to numb someone and get them out of pain and do it in a quick manner is a great service that we offer here at our office.
There are a couple of reasons why someone would need a root canal. You can have a cracked tooth, you could have a inflammation within the tooth that can not be resolved without our intervention, or you can have an abscess tooth or necrotic tooth, which means that the nerve space or root canal system of that tooth has died. So it’s filled with bacteria and the only way to relieve your pain is take the tooth out or do a root canal. If you were to take the tooth out, you run into some other problems of other teeth shifting and so if you can save your tooth, there’s nothing better than having your own tooth.
