Although many people think root canal treatment is a scary experience, it is far from it. Prior to your root canal, a local anesthetic is used to make sure the area is numbed. A tiny hole is created in the affected tooth, allowing your endodontist in Phoenix to properly access the tooth pulp and root. The root canal is thoroughly cleaned, disinfected and then sealed, reducing the risk of future complications or need for root canal re-treatment.
Following root canal therapy, it is recommended to place a dental crown. A dental crown can provide additional strength and protection for the affected tooth along with improving the appearance of the tooth.
Left untreated, damaged, infected and decayed tooth roots can become a much more serious problem, resulting in tooth loss, oral infections and in extreme cases, sepsis (a fatal infection of the blood).
