Over 14 million people around the world undergo a root canal every year, meaning it is one of the most common dental procedures. Although it is relatively simple to carry out, the benefits of root canal therapy in Kaufman can be enormous, as it can save a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted and replaced with an implant or denture. Inside your teeth is what’s known as pulp- blood vessels which the tooth grows around. Unfortunately, this pulp can become infected due to all manner of reasons, whether that’s decay, a crack or chip in the tooth, or even too many dental procedures being performed on that particular tooth. Pulp infection can be painful, and is characterized by swelling or a sensitivity to hot or cold food and drink.
After the root canal has been carried out, we will then arrange an appointment within the next couple of weeks to decide if any further restoration is needed. Complications are extremely rare after this sort of treatment, but you should keep up a diligent dental hygiene regime to prevent any further tooth decay and keep the rest of your teeth in top condition.
