Dealing with frequent dental discomfort, recurring dental decay, or missing teeth can be devastating and really affect your quality of life. These issues can all lead to problems with eating food, speaking correctly, and feeling confident about your smile. For patients dealing with these issues, we are happy to provide a number of restorative dental treatments.
One of our main goals is to do everything we can to save your natural teeth. This is one of the reasons we stress the importance of scheduling any needed treatments as soon as possible. When you do not care for your teeth properly or avoid treatment, it can lead to serious oral health complications and the need for tooth extraction, but we are hopeful we can restore the tooth with a root canal before we have to resort to that. Read on to learn more about this treatment and to understand why it’s not as bad as you might imagine.
Think about your favorite superhero movie. Most likely, the hero of the movie ends up saving the world from destruction. The same is true for a root canal in the way that it saves your natural teeth from destruction. At times, tooth decay or a tooth infection is unavoidable. Whether it is caused from lack of oral care, age, side effects of medication, or a medical condition, we try our very best to always save your natural teeth. When a filling or other treatment is not able to solve the problem, we recommend a root canal.
