Why Root Canals Are Necessary
If you’ve ever had an infected root canal, you know what a painful experience it can be. Any time you experience this kind of intense pain, you can be pretty sure that a serious problem is brewing and needs to be taken care of immediately.
Root canals are an important treatment that addresses a serious problem involving the pulp of a tooth that has become infected. The pulp is a system of blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissues inside the tooth that helps the tooth maintain its vitality. It also contains a series of minute passageways known as root canals that interconnect with the body’s nervous system. If the infection is not treated, you will experience continued pain, swelling, and even possible tooth loss.
During the root canal procedure, Dr. Davis gently removes the infected tissue, then carefully cleans and seals the tooth. He may also decide to use medication or an antibiotic to control the infection. In most cases, a dental crown will be needed to protect and strengthen the tooth.
