What Is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a procedure used to salvage a tooth by removing an infected and damaged root nerve. The surgery involves gently removing the nerve and pulp, to prevent further damage to the surrounding teeth and gum.
Even though endodontics is often referred to as a root canal, the root itself does not get removed. The soft tissue from inside the structure gets removed. If decay progresses to the first stage, a small filling will be required. If decay develops to the third stage depicted, root canal therapy will be required.
What Can Cause Infected Pulp in Your Tooth?
Dr. Jiveh may recommend a root canal if you are experiencing any of the following issues:
- A deep cavity
- Repeated dental procedures
- A cracked or broken tooth
- Injury to the tooth (even if there’s not a visible crack or chip)
Are Root Canals Painful?
Most of the time, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involving one to three visits. Best of all, it can save your tooth and your smile! If you continue to care for your teeth and gums your restored tooth could last a lifetime.
If you find yourself nervous about the prospect of a root canal, let us know! Dr. Jiveh and our team always want you to feel comfortable and pain-free, and we will work with you to ensure your entire visit with us is stress-free.
