Tooth restoration – root canals

A root canal is a form of restoration that can be applied to a tooth before extraction measures are taken. This procedure removes the decayed portion of a tooth from the root of the tooth, then fills the empty space with cement in order to make the tooth strong again. If a root canal is not taken but the tooth is decaying, the tooth may fracture due to a lack of strength – which would then cause further pain.

Root canals are not always preceded by pain in the tooth, but the following symptoms generally indicate the need for such procedure. If experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s best to have Dr. G take a look to see if one is needed. This will prevent further pain, damage, and extraction.
