If you develop a toothache that doesn’t go away or seems to worsen with time, you may have an infection in the pulp of the tooth. The pulp is essentially the nerve system that keeps your tooth alive. In the past, people with bad toothaches tended to get a tooth pulled to relieve the pain, but we know now that missing teeth actually cause more problems down the road. With root canal therapy, we can stop the pain and save the tooth.
Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, a root canal is not the long, painful process many think it is. We can do it safely, easily, and with very little to no pain! You won’t regret choosing this process over an extraction.
