Root Canals in High Park
WHAT IS A ROOT CANAL?
A root canal procedure is a dental procedure that is used to treat teeth that are adversely affected in the roots, specifically the pulp area of the tooth. This part of the tooth contains nerve endings and soft tissue, which may get infected by bacteria causing a lot of discomfort and pain. This is normally caused by tooth decay. If left untreated, the infection and tooth decay can lead to loss of the entire tooth, therefore, any infection should be treated soonest. Root canal involves removal of the damaged and decaying part of the tooth and replacing the created cavity with cap or crown to give the tooth a natural look. The following reasons call for root canal: when tooth decay has got to the pulp; when an infection develops inside the tooth or when the tooth is injured. In case you have tooth decay or you are experiencing some discomfort in your teeth, book an appointment now with Dr. Paltsev.
