What are Root Canals?
Root canals are dental procedures used to treat and preserve teeth with infected roots. Infected roots, if left untreated, can cause quite a few issues for people. When teeth become infected, patients can experience significant pain and swelling. With root canals, the doctor takes away the damaged parts of the tooth, and of the infected root. Then, we’ll seal and fill the root. After this, we’ll restore the organic portion of the tooth with new material. Usually, this is either a cap or a crown. Teeth are candidates for root canals if decay and/or damage allows bacteria to infect the pulp inside of the tooth.
At Paradigm, we always strive to to offer the best options for all of our patients. Root canal therapy is the right treatment for many of our patients, because they prefer to preserve as much of their natural tooth as possible. Similar procedures often extract the diseased, and also the healthy parts of your tooth. If you think that a root canal may be a good option for your dental health, take a few moments to make an appointment at our Beaverton office here.
