Root canal treatments, also known as “endodontics,” are often necessary when the nerves, blood vessels, or pulp within the tooth have become infected and/or damaged. With today’s modern techniques and anesthesia, the term “root canal” should no longer be a cause of dread. The dentists of Dentistry @ Merritt ensure each root canal treatment is carried out with the utmost in compassion and sensitivity.
Why Have Root Canal Therapy?
When a tooth becomes infected or dies, the abscess (pus-filled area) can spread the infection to the neighbouring nerves and tissue. This can lead to even bigger problems that may include additional tooth loss or gum disease.
