Save Your Tooth With Root Canal Therapy

Save Your Tooth With Root Canal Therapy

Your teeth are far more intricate than mere food grinders. Did you know the roots of your teeth play a crucial role in your oral health? They anchor your teeth in your jawbone and house canals filled with essential nerves and blood vessels. 

But when a root infection strikes, it jeopardizes not just the tooth but your overall oral health. In this article, find out how you can save a tooth with the help of root canal therapy.

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy

Procedure Details

During the root canal therapy, your dentist will drill a small hole to access the roots of the affected tooth. Once inside, they will meticulously remove the bacteria and infection. To complete the procedure, the hole is then filled with a biocompatible material, serving as a protective shield against future damage.

Without Root Canal Therapy, You May Lose the Tooth

Tooth loss is caused primarily by physical accidents and decay. Many people manage to go their whole lives without knocking their teeth out of their mouths. However, if you don’t take care of your teeth at home, you could still lose them

When bacteria build up over time, they wear away at your teeth and can cause damage so severe that the tooth is no longer viable. If your dentist recommends a root canal, you need to get this procedure scheduled as soon as possible, because you’ve got serious damage happening.

Called Dimples and wish I called them first. Their receptionist was SO kind and SO helpful. Even offered to call to have my records sent to them in hopes to save me some money from doing x rays again. She was nothing but sweet! Got me scheduled within 2 days. Went above and beyond and was kind when I arrived.

Dan and Sara Carlson

Dr. Roos and his staff are incredibly professional, kind, and knowledgeable. Their pricing is also extremely reasonable, even for those without insurance. We had an excellent experience with a dental emergency exam; they also had availability to fit us in for a routine exam and cleaning after the emergency exam.
