Root canal is a procedure that may be required whenever the pulp of a tooth has become damaged, or when it has become inflamed or infected by bacteria. There’s no mystery as to when this is usually required; you may experience symptoms which include:
Root canals address the issue by removing the soft tissue from the core of the tooth, and by filling the space with a dentally sound material that will allow it to function just as any other tooth would.
After the root canal has been completed, you will then have a crown or a permanent restoration placed on the tooth by your general dentist, to give it structural strength and durability. The crown is bonded into place, and cosmetically matched to the look of your natural teeth. The entire root canal procedure can be performed in one or two visits, and can make a world of difference for patients in Essex county that may be experiencing severe tooth pain or other symptoms of an abscess.
