Getting to the Root of the Problem
A root canal procedure is one of the most common dental services performed each year. This straightforward dental procedure can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or dental bridges. In the past, if a tooth had a diseased or injured nerve, the tooth would have needed to be extracted. But today, with a simple dental procedure known as a root canal, many infected roots can be saved.
How do you know if you need a root canal? Infection of the tooth’s canals can be caused by the following and will most often result in redness and swelling around the tooth:
- Trauma to the tooth
- Deep decay
- Cracks, chips or breaking of the tooth
- Repeated dental procedures
The root canal procedure typically requires a local anesthetic and results in little to no pain and discomfort and can be done in just a few short visits to our Dakota Dental Apple Valley dental clinic.
If you’ve been told you may need root canal therapy, don’t delay! The root canal cost is far less expensive than treatments used on further damaged teeth such as extractions. Dakota Dental Center offers affordable dentistry you can trust!
