Root Canals are a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. When the nerve of a tooth becomes infected, the pulp becomes damaged and needs to be removed. Root Canals essentially remove the pulp, clean the inside of the tooth, and seal it off so that no further damage or pain can occur.
While root canal procedures have the reputation of being painful, in actuality, most people report that it is not very painful at all and can be compared to having a filling done. At Bastien Dental Care, we want you to feel comfortable during your procedure and provide top quality root canal procedures in the Tallahassee, FL area.
Why Undergo a Root Canal?
- If the damaged tooth pulp is not removed, swelling may spread to other areas of the face or head
- It could also result in bone loss around the tip of the root
- You can develop drainage problems extending outward from the root
