What Is a Root Canal Procedure?
If your dentist says you need a root canal procedure, don’t be apprehensive. It’s a straightforward procedure that’s performed millions of times each year to eliminate pain and restore beautiful smiles and dental health.
Inside each tooth is a substance called pulp that contains blood vessels, connective tissue, and nerves that are vital to the teeth and gums during a person’s formative years. When teeth are mature, they can survive without these items because tissues in the surrounding area will provide any necessary nutrients. If you have decay, damage, or infection, you may need a root canal in order to restore health to the tooth and the surrounding area. Left untreated, inflammation could turn into an abscess, which is extremely painful and can cause the loss of the tooth. If you suspect a root canal is necessary, seek root canal treatment by calling our office in San Marcos today.
During a root canal treatment, your dentist will disinfect the area and remove the decay, the area will then be filled with gutta percha. You’ll receive a crown over the area, which will look, feel, and function like your natural tooth. Your smile and the integrity of your jaw and other teeth will be restored. Call our office in San Marcos today if you need to schedule a root canal procedure.
