Root Canals Can Be the Cure for the Common Toothache

Don’t let dental damage cause you pain when the remedy is right within reach. Root canals may be solution to take away your ache and angst.

What Are Root Canals?

This is a question asked by many people when they’re facing dental pain. Root canals are affordable dental care remedies that both soothe and save millions of teeth each and every year. Root canals are rooted in a specialty called endodontics, which treats the soft pulp in the interior of the tooth. This pulp contains nerves and the blood vessels supporting the tooth. If the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, then root canals are required to remove all of damaged pulp and save the tooth from further trouble. Once the tooth is thoroughly cleaned, it is filled and sealed with a rubber-like substance. Then, a crown is placed on the tooth to restore it to full function.

5 Common Causes for Root Canals

The most common causes for root canals include:

  • Damaged dental crowns
  • A cracked or chipped tooth
  • Deep tooth decay
  • Frequent dental procedures
  • Trauma to the tooth

Root canals are affordable dental care treatments that can save you the time, money, and pain of dealing with later dental problems. Which makes it ironic that root canals are thought to be painful procedures. The truth is that root canals feel similar to getting a filling. This endodontics treatment allows you to preserve your natural teeth and maintain a healthy smile for life.
