Root Canal Therapy

Your teeth contain several layers: the outer protective enamel, a secondary layer of sensitive dentin, and an inner pulp that contains components commonly referred to as the "nerve" of the tooth. A deep cavity, traumatic injury, or tooth fracture can make the canal susceptible to bacterial infection, which can kill the pulp, stimulate increased blood flow, and create pressure within the tooth. This can cause severe tooth pain and may initiate bone degeneration and tooth loss. If you see a dentist in the earliest stages of this condition, the tooth may be saved with a root canal. Otherwise, it may need to be extracted and replaced with a prosthetic.

Will root canal therapy hurt? With today's advanced analgesics and technology, it doesn't always have to. At Northstone Dental Group we strive to keep you as comfortable as we can through the entire process. Contact us today with any questions you have about root canal treatment.
