Reasons for Root Canals


If dental pain has become a pain, you may to have to get a root canal. Find out why this remedy may be just the relief you need.

A Review of Root Canals

The first question that many ask is, “what is a root canal?” Root canals are affordable dental care remedies that both soothe and save millions of teeth each and every year.

Root canals are rooted in a specialty called endodontics, which treats the soft pulp in the interior of the tooth. This pulp contains nerves and the blood vessels supporting the tooth. If the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, then root canals are required to remove all of damaged pulp and save the tooth from further trouble. Once the tooth is thoroughly cleaned, it is filled and sealed with a rubber-like substance. Then, a crown is placed on the tooth to restore it to full function.

Root canals are recommended for many different reasons, but the most common causes include:

Deep decay

  • A crack or chip in a tooth
  • Frequent dental procedures
  • Damaged dental crowns
  • Trauma to the tooth

The Tooth-Saving Solution

Root canals are affordable dental care treatments that can save you the time, money, and pain of dealing with later dental problems. Which makes it ironic that root canals are thought to be painful procedures. The truth is that root canals feel similar to getting a filling.

With this endodontics treatment, you can preserve your natural teeth and have a healthy smile for life.
