Root canal

A root canal removes an infected or damaged dental nerve.

 

Q. Why do I need a root canal?

A. If you have a damaged or infected nerve, it can lead to pain. This pain can be very significant at times. Removing the nerve with a root canal will eliminate that pain.

 

Q. Do root canals hurt?

A. The nerve is fully anesthetized before the start of a root canal treatment. There should be no pain while having the affected nerve treated.

 

Q. What happens after my root canal?

A. Once the nerve is removed from the tooth, the tooth is basically dead and becomes brittle over time. A dental crown is placed on the tooth to protect it once a root canal is completed.

 

Q. What if I don’t do a root canal?

A. The pain or infection will get worse and possibly cause a medical situation.
