What is a Root Canal, and how can it help me?
When the fragile nerve tissue that helps to hold your teeth in place in your jaw becomes infected by bacteria for a long enough period of time, it begins to break down and will ultimately lead to the loss of a tooth.
A root canal is a measure that can help prevent the loss of any teeth, so long as the infection damage is caught early enough and the appropriate actions are taken. These actions include removing the infected areas of the root.
What are the signs that my root nerves are damaged?
- Infection visible on an x-ray
- Swollen gum tissue
- Tooth/Gum pain
- Discoloration of the gums surrounding a tooth
We always strive to save your natural teeth but sometimes it is impossible if the damage is not caught early enough. The best way to prevent such damage is to maintain proper dental hygiene techniques and to meet regular cleaning and exam dates.
