Root canal treatment, or endodontic treatment, is needed when the pulp of the tooth becomes inflamed or infected. This can be quite painful or uncomfortable, so a root canal treatment is necessary to remove the pulp and relieve any pain. At Southside Family Dental we make your comfort our priority and use modern techniques and technology for a pain free treatment.
- An inflected or inflamed pulp leads to pain and discomfort. The root canal treatment is aimed at relieving this pain.
- After a root canal treatment the tooth may become brittle and needs to be covered with a crown to prevent any fractures
- A natural tooth is always stronger and more durable than a synthetic tooth, although if well cared for a crown will last many years
