Root Canals Explained
Due to myths popularized by television and movies, many people cringe at the phrase “root canal.” The fact is, in most cases, root canal therapy is no more painful than having a tooth filled.
Root canals are necessary when decay penetrates a tooth and begins harming the soft tissue and nerves within. Left unchecked, this decay can spread to other teeth and affect your overall health.
For your root canal process, Dr. Ricciardi will:
- Carefully plan your procedure using cutting-edge dental technology, including digital X-rays
- Numb the area to ensure your comfort
- Remove the infected soft tissue inside your tooth
- Protect your tooth structure by filling the tooth with an inert material called gutta-percha
For added strength, Dr. Ricciardi may also recommend placing a dental crown on your tooth.
