What Is A Root Canal?
A root canal is a dental procedure designed to save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. This treatment involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it, and then filling and sealing it. The common misconception is that root canal therapy is painful, but in reality, it’s a pain-relieving treatment.
Why Should You Consider Root Canal Therapy?
Ignoring a tooth that needs a root canal can lead to severe pain and further complications, including abscesses, infection spread, and even tooth loss. Opting for root canal therapy at Denver Dream Dentistry means choosing to preserve your natural tooth, maintain your jawbone’s integrity, and prevent the shifting of surrounding teeth.
