How root canal treatment can save a badly decayed, cracked, or infected tooth ?

You may have heard of the root canal procedure, and for most patients, the words often bring about feelings of anxiety. However, the root canal treatment is actually a pain-free experience and, for many, actually addresses pain and discomfort from an infected, badly decayed, or severely cracked tooth. Speaking with the team at Glow Dental Spa is the first step to better understanding the root canal procedure and why it might be necessary.

What is a root canal?

A root canal is a dental treatment performed to repair a tooth that has been damaged or infected. During the procedure, the infected or inflamed pulp, which are the nerves and blood vessels located inside the tooth’s roots, are removed. After that, the area is cleaned thoroughly and then filled to prevent further infection.

Why do I need a root canal?

Without root canal treatment, patients with damaged teeth are at a higher risk of needing to have their teeth permanently extracted and replaced. The goal is to keep the smile intact for as long as possible with the natural teeth, so root canal therapy allows patients to do just that! It can be used to treat a tooth that would otherwise need removal.

Is the root canal procedure affordable?

Many dental insurance plans typically provide coverage for these treatments, so please bring your dental insurance card with you so our front office team can apply any benefits to your final costs. We also offer payment financing for out-of-pocket expenses.
