Has your dentist told you that you need root canal treatment? If so, you're not alone. Millions of teeth are treated and saved each year with root canal treatment.
There are a lot negative connotations surrounding the term "root canal", mostly because people associate it with pain. But the purpose of root canals is to remove infection and get the patient out of pain. Patients often find great relief after root canal treatment.
Saving an infected or dying tooth is always the best option and if a root canal is recommended to you, your dentist has your best interests at heart for the long-term health and retention of your natural teeth.
