Root canal therapy is used to treat teeth that are infected or dead due to decay or injury. Infected teeth should be taken seriously – an untreated infection can turn deadly, spreading into your neck or brain.
Many people fear root canal therapy, associating the acute pain of their infection with the treatment it requires. In reality, modern root canal therapy is a generally easy procedure that, rather than causing pain, actually eliminates it by fixing the underlying problem and restoring an infected tooth to health.
Despite a common misconception, the root of your tooth remains intact after treatment. The dentist merely cleans the infected tissue out of the small tubes running down the root. In most cases, teeth that have had root canal therapy must be protected by a crown.
