Root Canals and Posts
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment or endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure in which the diseased or damaged pulp, which is also known as nerve, of a tooth is removed and the inside areas (the pulp chamber and root canals) are filled and sealed. Root canal treatment is usually very successful and has become a common dental procedure; more than 14 million are performed every year with a 95% success rate, according to the American Association of Endodontists.
The goal of root canal therapy is to improve the health of your damaged tooth; therefore, it is designed to save the tooth from extraction and prevent the spread of infection.
The root canal therapy will leave your tooth clean, uninfected and without any pain. It is usually recommended to place a crown over a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy.
Root canals have gained one of the worst reputations on the planet and, believe it or not, it is much undeserved. For a person who feels tooth pain or discomfort, a root canal may be indicated, and a qualified dentist, such as Dr. Zuman, should be consulted in a timely manner. Our professional dentists at Fine Quality Dental control the pain with advanced anesthesia techniques, leaving the tooth in perfect conditions and with no pain at all!
