What is root canal therapy?
Today, dentistry has evolved to the point where root canal therapy is no longer the painful procedure it once was. It’s time to look past the bad reputation of root canal and see it for the valuable, pain relieving treatment it actually is.
The root canal is the area of the tooth that houses the pulp and the nerve. Sometimes this part of the tooth can become infected. When this happens, not only is the tooth extremely painful and sensitive, but the infection can also spread to other areas of the mouth and to other teeth. The most effective way to treat this infection is root canal therapy.
