Root canal treatment is a type of dental procedure used to treat infections that have reached the pulp of the tooth. The pulp is the soft tissue inside the tooth that contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. When the pulp becomes infected, it can cause pain, sensitivity, and swelling. Root canal treatment is used to remove the infected pulp and save the tooth from further damage and provide relief to you from further discomfort.

There are several reasons why you may need a root canal. The most common reason is that the nerve of the tooth has been damaged by decay. Other reasons include an injury to the tooth, an infection, or gum disease.

After your root canal therapy, Doctor Samuelson will often recommend a dental crown for the treated tooth in order to strengthen the tooth and to prevent the tooth from fracturing.


What are the Benefits of Having a Root Canal?

The benefits of having a root canal include saving your tooth, restoring your smile, relieving discomfort, and eliminating any infection that could potentially move systemically. When you have a root canal, it allows you to keep your natural tooth rather than having it extracted. Additionally, it restores your smile because your tooth will look healthy and whole again.
