There are many misconceptions around root canal treatment , but we are here to clear the air. You are probably primarily concerned with the procedure’s pain, but with advancements in technology, root canals are now painless, fast and comfortable. In reality, the pain you experience from having an infected tooth in your mouth is more painful than the procedure itself, so you can let out a sigh of relief from any anticipated pain. Here at Family Dental Care, we prioritize saving the tooth so you can smile again with confidence.
Saving The Infected
Losing a tooth can be an anxiety trigger for many but for the most part, it is simply a damper on our self-esteem. If you lose a tooth, you are faced with either living with a gummy gap or having to fund cosmetic dentistry such as implants. Either way, losing a tooth is never a fun experience. Thankfully, root canals are an excellent way to preserve the tooth and come with the following benefits:
- Stop the spread of infection – addressing the infected tooth and removing the bacteria will prevent the spread to neighbouring teeth.
- Aesthetically appealing – once the tooth has been cleaned, it will be filled and sealed with a crown. The results leave very little sign of the procedure being done.
- Restore the tooth – root canals help restore the tooth to a healthy condition so it can function like your other teeth.
- Prevent jawbone deterioration – missing teeth cause jawbone deterioration over time, so by saving the tooth, you are preserving the integrity of your jawbone.
- Improve oral and overall health – poor oral hygiene makes you susceptible to many health conditions such as respiratory disease. Cleaning out infected teeth will ensure your oral health is not compromised and will enhance your overall health as well.
