How a Root Canal Can Save Your Tooth


Do you have damaged teeth? Are your teeth and gums at a higher risk of getting cavities and infections due to lifestyle choices or medical conditions?

When decay and infection spread into the core of a tooth, the pain can start to become unbearable. A root canal might be the ideal solution for you.

Root canals are one of the most popular dental procedures of all time. However, there are still people who do not know how a root canal works and how it can actually save a tooth.

Some people are even considering tooth extraction rather than a root canal. For the record, both procedures are considered safe. However, a root canal should always be the first option to avoid your whole tooth getting pulled out.


A root canal may take a lot of time, but it is all worth it. You will have to undergo several tests and X rays to locate the decay in your tooth before undergoing a root canal.

There is no need to worry about the pain because local anesthesia will be administered before the procedure starts.

Through the process of a pulpectomy, a root canal repairs or removes a damaged area of the tooth that can cause cavities and gum infection. This process can also rid of any decay and prevent your tooth to be fully damaged. A decaying tooth will most likely spread and affect its neighboring teeth.


After the procedure, your tooth that had undergone the procedure will still have the same function. The aftercare is not complicated and the recovery time is not that long. In most cases, there will be no bleeding and excessive swelling.
