Root canal therapy is one area of dentistry to which the term painless now applies. Are you surprised?
Root canal therapy is one of the more common dental procedures performed today to save teeth. Technology has revolutionized the procedure for both patient and doctor. Routinely, with this new technology, patient time spent in the chair has been reduced, and the procedure is normally completed in one appointment.
Our doctors here at Sackville Dental Centre have advanced their training. They perform this procedure on a daily basis with the newest technology.
Why a Root Canal?
Root canal treatment is required when nerve tissue inside the tooth degenerates, or loses the ability to function. Without root canal treatment, the infection in the tooth pulp can result in an abscess, which in time can cause damage to the jawbone. You will need a root canal to save your tooth and to ensure that the tissue around the root of the tooth remains healthy and free from inflammation.
What Causes Toothache?
There are several reasons why your tooth may become irritated and inflamed: deep decay, big fillings, trauma to the tooth, a chipped tooth or even repeated dental work. For more information, contact Sackville Dental Centre.
