When the nerve of your tooth becomes infected, a successful root canal treatment lets you keep the tooth rather than having to remove it. Keeping your tooth helps to prevent your other teeth from drifting out of line and causing jaw problems. Saving a natural tooth avoids having to replace it with an artificial tooth, such as an implant.
Endodontic treatment helps you maintain your natural smile, continue eating the foods you love and limits the need for ongoing dental work. With proper care, most teeth that have had root canal treatment can last as long as other natural teeth and often for a lifetime. Modern day technology allows us to care for our patients so that the procedure is much quicker and more comfortable for patients. If you require root canal, contact our office for a consultation regarding treatment.
