Root Canals Have A Bad Reputation

There is no doubt about it, root canals have a horrible reputation. People total horror stories about them and nobody really understands what they are and how beneficial they can be. If you have a tooth that is cracked, loose, decayed, or damaged in any other way, bacteria can get into the pulp inside and cause infection. To be able to protect the tooth, that bad tissue will need to be removed. In its simplest terms that is what root canals consist of in Lakeview.

No Matter What People Will Have You Believe …

A root canal is a rather simple procedure. The reason that many people are afraid to have this done is that they have this idea in their head that it is more invasive than they think, highly complex, painful and difficult to get through. This simply isn’t true and having a root canal done in Lakeview can be compared to having a filling done. It is done under anesthesia and a small hole will be made in the tooth to be repaired. Your tooth will be cleaned out, close the hole, and place a crown over the tooth to protect it.

A Root Canal Can Ease Your Pain

If you have infected tooth in your mouth, you might have noticed any or all these symptoms and none of them are pleasant to say the least.

* Pain from a toothache which may come and go, which can be persistent.
* Swelling, a fever, and/or soreness to the touch.
* A bad taste or odor, or a discharge around your tooth.
* It can affect how far you can open your mouth, chewing, or swallowing.
