Do you have an infected tooth causing pain?
The most frequent reason why root canals are requires it that the pulp tissue inside your tooth has become inflamed or infected. Root canals help heal the inflammation or infection the can also affect the bone and gums surrounding the tooth.
- Several problems may require root canal treatment such as:
- Cracked tooth
- Chipped tooth
- Inflammation in the pulp area of tooth
- Tooth infection
- Several dental procedures on the same tooth
- Injury to the tooth
- Deep decay inside the tooth
Root canal treatment saves the infected tooth by removing the infection inside your tooth. The root canal walls are then cleaned and shaped. The inside of your tooth is filled with a soft rubbery material filling up the space that was cleaned and shaped. Most root canals are then followed by a dental procedure such as a dental cap to restore the tooths more normal shape. A root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office in Longview WA.
