It’s common for people to think that root canal therapy is intimidating or uncomfortable. However, this couldn’t be farther from the reality. Root canal therapy is largely comparable to receiving a dental filling, which is a relatively minor procedure. Furthermore, putting off root canal therapy when you need it will only allow your dental pain to get even worse. In fact, you may need to have the whole tooth removed as the infection continues to spread. Modern techniques and advanced technology provided by Dr. Gizachew gives your damaged tooth a second chance. So, by giving us a call, you can both relieve your chronic discomfort and save your tooth.
The center of the tooth is home to a dense collection of blood vessels, tissues, nerve endings, and other organic materials. This collection, known as pulp, is protected by a thick layer of enamel. As a result, bacteria cannot reach it unless the enamel layer is compromised, either by decay or injury that cracks or erodes it. If the pulp becomes infected, you’ll quickly notice a high level of discomfort that is so unbearable you won’t be able to ignore it. Without professional care, your dental infection will not get better on its own. Additionally, it can spread to other teeth if not treated right away.
