Gentle, Effective Root Canal Treatment
Have you been told that root canal treatment has to hurt to be effective? At Belle Meade Family Dentistry, we take great care to ensure that all our root canal procedures are gentle and effective. In fact, when the root canal is over, all you will notice is how much your tooth no longer hurts thanks to our advanced procedures and equipment!
If the inside of your tooth has become infected, a root canal is typically always recommended.
The root canal process cleans out the inside of the tooth, removing the infected pulp and nerves. The tooth can still function normally, but you will no longer have any feeling in the tooth. This is beneficial, especially for patients who have experienced a great deal of pain due to a tooth infection.
Without a root canal, you would risk losing your tooth and being in discomfort all day, every day. You could also end up with medical problems related to an infection that was not properly treated.
