What’s a root canal?
When teeth get decayed or infected, a root canal can be done to repair and save a tooth. During a root canal, the decayed or infected tissue is extracted, and the canal is reshaped and refilled with a strengthened filler. It is very important to get this done if it is recommended as it could lead to more severe issues if left untreated. Root canal treatment is virtually painless and saves the natural tooth. It provides a visually appealing result and enhances oral health.
How do I know If I need root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment is needed when the soft tissue inside the root canal, called the pulp, becomes inflamed or infected. If it hurts to chew, you have a chipped tooth, or you feel sensitivity to cold or heat, you may be experiencing symptoms of a root canal.
