Sometimes the soft tissue inside a tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels can become infected due to physical irritation or trauma. If this happens, it will be necessary to perform a root canal treatment.
It’s understandable you’d be concerned, maybe even scared, about the possibility of having a root canal procedure. Over the years, root canals have become synonymous with serious pain; but they’ve actually come a long way. New technology now enables us to to perform the procedure virtually pain-free. And once the root canal procedure is complete, it’s likely you’ll be free of pain afterwards, too!
