Root Canal Procedure
In a root canal procedure, your dentist will remove the infected nerve found inside your tooth and then fill out the canal with a material which will seal it off, preventing it from getting further infected. After undergoing a root canal treatment, the tooth that was saved often becomes very brittle. It can be prone to fracture, which is why the affected tooth is recommended for restoration using a crown. This is part of an overall decayed teeth treatment to again prevent the tooth from becoming further compromised. We will review your individual case and go over all details with you prior to treatment.
A root canal procedure can sometimes be complex. There are difficulties that lie with the many configurations and special conditions of each root canal of each individual tooth, which is something that your dentist will have to consider. In some cases, our doctors may recommend you see an endodontist (a root canal specialist). However, this is a procedure that will truly be for your benefit because undergoing it will save you from a lot of serious complications down the line, should you choose to forgo treating it and allow the problem to get worse.
