Experience little or no discomfort with Root Canal Therapy.
When a tooth gets infected due to bacteria being present in a deep cavity, and it enters the nerve, the result is a painful condition referred to as a dental abscess. A root canal is a the treatment used to clean out the infected tooth and save it from requiring extraction. At times, injury or fracture of a tooth may also require a root canal, especially if the fracture results in the nerve being exposed to bacteria in the mouth. Contrary to popular belief, most patients experience little to no discomfort during this procedure.
