Preserve Your Natural Smile With Root Canal Treatment

If you haven’t undergone root canal treatment, then you probably don’t know the ins and outs of this restorative procedure. You may have heard some negative things, but as your dentist in Dublin, we’ll happily clear up those misconceptions. Root canals, or endodontic treatment, is a safe and effective option to get rid of harmful bacteria or disease from an infected root and save the tooth. The only other option is tooth extraction, which can harm your smile.

Why patients go for root canal treatment

If you find out that you require root canal treatment, try not to get scared. If you’re feeling anxious, we hope this overview helps ease your worries. According to the American Association of Endodontists, patients who get a root canal are six times more likely to describe it as painless than patients who opt for tooth removal. This is thanks to today’s modern techniques and numbing anesthesia. And each year, millions of people see their dentist or endodontist for this procedure. It immediately relieves pain and makes the tooth healthy again.

When a filling just won’t do…

If the decay has only reached the dentin (layer under the enamel) or enamel (outer surface of the tooth), then a regular filling will do the job. But, if the decay is given the chance, it will travel further until it hits the nerve tissue. At that point, only a root canal can save the tooth.
