Commonly Asked Questions About Root Canals

Why have a root canal?

Root canals are necessary when a tooth has become infected. This happens when bacteria reaches the pulp (the soft tissue found inside of a tooth). The bacteria can also cause painful inflammation, which can make it difficult to bite and chew and may interfere with your day-to-day activities. By getting a root canal, you can remove the inflamed and infected tissue and rebuild your tooth.

Are root canals painful?

Although many people believe that root canal therapy is painful, it is no more uncomfortable than getting a tooth filled. We’ll use a local anesthetic to make sure the tooth is numb before we begin your procedure. That way you can relax and feel confident that you’re not going to feel any discomfort.

Can root canals be avoided?

Yes, the good news is it’s unlikely you’ll ever need a root canal if you take good care of your teeth. Infection usually gets inside a tooth through severe decay or damage like a crack or break. Repairing a cavity or other damage as soon as possible should prevent the need for root canal treatment.
