When is a Root Canal Necessary?
Root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. This may occur if injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. When left untreated, this type of infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and necessitate an extraction.
How a Root Canal Works
To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, Dr. Vacek will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth, clean it, and fill it with a medicated material. He will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the enamel to its original shape and structure. In most cases, a root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office.
Root Canals Are NOT Painful
Root canal treatment has a reputation for being painful. In reality, however, it can often be completed while causing virtually no discomfort thanks to advanced techniques, tools, sedation, and anesthesia. Dr. Vacek and the entire team will work hard to provide you with a pleasant experience each time you visit our office. Patient comfort is one of our highest priorities right alongside your health and safety, so you can trust that when you’re in the treatment chair, you’re always in good hands.
