The bad reputation of root canal treatment is mostly undeserved. The truth is that they are an important procedure that can make the difference between saving your tooth and losing it. Additionally, root canal treatment will treat any underlying infection to keep it from spreading and possibly affecting other teeth and causing more pain.
Modern dental techniques allow us to treat root canals much more comfortably and effectively than before. This quick procedure can save you time, pain, and money that you might otherwise have to spend on dentures, partials, and dental implants.
