Why You Might Need a Root Canal

Inside every one of your teeth is a collection of soft tissue called the dental pulp, which in addition to numerous blood vessels, also contains the nerve of your tooth. Whether due to a cavity or injury that has cracked the enamel, if this pulp is exposed to bacteria, it can become infected. This can cause the tissue to swell, creating pressure inside the tooth that is usually the source of a very bad toothache. In the past, the only solution was to remove teeth with this type of problem, but thankfully, they can now be preserved using root canal therapy.

How a Root Canal Therapy Actually Works

Thanks to modern-day methods involving local anesthetic and sedation dentistry, our root canal patients report feeling next to nothing during the procedure. Dr. Perez takes patient comfort very seriously, so he does whatever he can to make the treatment as painless as possible. Most patients compare the experience to getting a small filling placed, which is to say not uncomfortable at all! The pain relief is usually immediate, and afterward, the treated tooth can be trusted to function normally for the rest of a person’s life.
