Root canal therapy in one single visit
A root canal is necessary when a filling or crown cannot alleviate the problem. Once decay reaches the nerve and blood vessels deep inside the tooth, an infection can begin, leading to increased sensitivity and pain. The infection can kill the tooth and promote bone decay in the surrounding area. If the problem is found on time, root canal therapy may prevent you from experiencing these problems.
During a root canal, the dentist will remove the infected pulp from deep inside of your tooth's canal which is replaced with a durable inert substance. The final step in a root canal is placing a crown over the tooth. With today's technology and medication, root canal therapy can be done in one single visit.
