Patients typically need a root canal when there is an infection and inflammation in the root of a tooth. Patients might be experiencing severe and persistent toothache, sensitive or darkened tooth, swelling in the gum tissue and sores or pus on the gums.

Endodontist who is a root canal specialist uses a local anesthesia, drills the tooth, and removes the tissue and the nerve of a tooth. Then he disinfects, inserts root canal tools and a filling. To protect

the tooth a patient will need a buildup and a crown. Is the crown necessary patient would think and why? And the answer would be yes, because after the root canal is done, a crown will protect it from cracking.

If left untreated, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and the patient will eventually lose the tooth. Our dental office will be one pit stop for all your dental needs.
