A root canal is a very intricate procedure that our dentists will recommend when the tooth is severely decayed or infected. This procedure is one last attempt to save your tooth, which makes it very important. The procedure’s point is to reach into the tooth and remove the nerves and blood vessels that have become infected or damaged beyond repair. The dentist will clean the inside of the tooth and seal it once all the infected pulp is removed.
Most people fear the procedure for many reasons, such as the length of the procedure or the perceived pain associated with it. You do not have to worry about these issues with us. Our experience has given our dental specialists the skill to ensure that the procedure’s discomfort is minimal.
Remember that the real thing to fear is what might come from putting a root canal procedure off. Of course, toothaches could get severe, not to mention swelling around the tooth. In fact, the problem could get so bad that you might lose the tooth completely.
Our team will also inform you of some of the things you can expect after the procedure. For one, there will be some sensitivity for a few days, which is normal. It is important to avoid chewing on the area where the root canal was performed to avoid aggravating it since your tooth is still healing. Still, most people do not feel too much discomfort and go back to their normal day-to-day lives a day after the root canal procedure.
