Root Canal Therapy
Tooth decay affected thousands of Americans every single year. In some cases, decay persists, damaging the internal structure of the tooth and requiring root canal therapy.
What is Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal therapy is a preferred method of decay removal when a tooth becomes decayed and impacts that interior tissue. In a sterile setting, our dentist is able to remove decay from the inside and provide restoration to minimize vulnerability.
What Does a Root Canal Entail?
A root canal is a multi-step procedure, including:
- Identifying the extent of decay and damage
- Using an endodontic file to remove infected tissue and clean canals, including blood vessels and pulp
- Filling the canals with a permanent material to reduce sensitivity and minimize risk of more damage
- Seal the opening with a filling and cement a custom-made crown to complete the restoration
What Happens if I Don’t Get a Root Canal?
When Dr. Vivian Rose Kunstmann, DDS recommends a root canal, it’s because it is the best course of action to restore your entire mouth to optimal health. If you don’t treat infected and abscessed teeth, you are putting your overall health at risk. Not only will the damage spread throughout your mouth but will eventually impact how you eat and function.
