and Root Canals
With today’s knowledge and techniques, root canals can be as comfortable as getting a filling. When a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp tissue and cause an infection inside the tooth. This can not only injure your jawbones, but the infection could spread further and be detrimental to your overall health.
Teeth that require root canal therapy are not always painful. Without the proper treatment, your tooth may have to be removed. Regular dental visits can help detect problems earlier, giving you more treatment options.
