Root Canal Therapy
Despite the common belief that root canals are excruciatingly painful, in actuality they cause very little pain and discomfort. In fact, root canals actually relieve tooth pain. Dream Dental is here to help.
What is a Root Canal?
Each tooth has tissue containing nerve fibers that run through the center of the root of your tooth, which are called "root canals." When this tissue dies as a result of a deep cavity or trauma, root canal therapy is needed. Without treatment, pain gradually worsens, and the tooth can abscess and cause swelling.
Years ago, completing a root canal would take several, long visits to the dentist. Today, root canals can often be completed in less than one hour during a single visit, thanks to recent advances in technology and new dental techniques. Root canal treatment has a 95 percent success rate in saving infected teeth. And those teeth will be around for decades to come.
