What do you know about root canal therapy? Would you be surprised to learn that simple issues like trauma or tooth decay could make root canal therapy a necessity? Similarly, did you know that your tooth won’t heal from a damaged root canal on your own? In other words, if you don’t have root canal therapy, your tooth could die. At this point, having your tooth removed might be your only option. Luckily, root canal therapy has improved in recent years. Many even claim that root canal therapy is about as uncomfortable as having a cavity filled.

In reality, there are a number of reasons that this treatment has become more pleasant. For example, the tools our team uses for this important treatment have advanced, making them more flexible and thinner. As you may have guessed, this will let our team work with even more precision. Similarly, X-rays have also become better, which allows us to make sure your root canal therapy is performed as thoroughly as possible.

However, while root canal therapy may not be as bad as you might have expected, you should still avoid the need for the treatment whenever possible. To do so, you’ll need to brush and floss your teeth every day and schedule an appointment with us every six months. Still, please note that trauma could also make root canal therapy a necessity.
