Root Canals

PearTree Dental and OrthodonticsRoot canal therapy is probably the most misunderstood dental procedures and many misconceptions of this treatment exists.

Truth about Root Canals:

  • They don’t hurt, you are numb during procedure
  • We are not removing roots of the teeth, just the infected parts in the canals
  • They relieve pain, as many patients come to the dental office in extreme pain and root canal helps that pain
  • Root canals save teeth that otherwise would have to be extracted

Root Canal Needed When:

  • When your tooth has Abscess (Pus/Swelling in gums)
  • Your tooth is causing Pain
  • You have a cavity extending into the nerve of the tooth
  • Your tooth has a crack extending into the nerve of the tooth
  • Your tooth has had injury
