If you’re looking for facts and information about root canal treatment, then you have come to the right blog. Today, our dentist, Dr. Barrie Suzanne Zweier, is happy to share some facts about it. The more you know about root canal treatment, the better. In fact, it might even help you feel less nervous in the dental chair when receiving root canal treatment. Those root canal facts are:
-Root canal treatment is needed when a tooth is badly injured, decayed or infected. This might be because of one or more cavities, oral injury and severe oral infection.
-During root canal treatment, our dentist will remove the nerve and pulp of the tooth and then clean and seal the tooth. If needed, a dental crown will be placed over the tooth to protect it.
-Root canal treatment might have the reputation of being painful, but it’s no more painful than a dental filling treatment. This is because our dentist will use anesthetics and dental sedatives to numb your mouth and help you feel comfortable during treatment.
-If you ignore the decayed, damaged and infected tooth and delay root canal treatment, surrounding teeth can become infected and abscesses might form.
