Dentist in 48603

According to a 2014 report by the American Association of Endodontists, 54 percent of people surveyed said, “root canals make them apprehensive.” Our team understands that many patients feel nervous prior to treatment. However, root canal treatment can greatly improve your oral health and comfort. Here are some of the advantages to undergoing root canal therapy.

The toothache will go away
Have you been suffering with a toothache due to infected roots? Root canal therapy can help
eliminate discomfort and pain. Root canal therapy will allow you to live your life comfortably
without the need for painkilling medication.

Therapy can save a tooth
Root canal therapy can save a tooth that is badly damaged from infection that would otherwise
need to be extracted. It can also improve the appearance of your smile because a crown is
placed on top of the tooth, offering a healthy and attractive appearance. Our team may be able
to help you retain your natural teeth through root canal therapy.

Prevent the spread of infection
During treatment, the entire area surrounding the infected tooth is cleaned. This can prevent
the spread of the infection. Ignoring an infection can cause bacteria to spread to healthy teeth
and your gums. By limiting the spread of infection, you will save yourself time and money from
having to deal with additional and costly dental work.

Our team is experienced
Root canal therapy is a similar experience to having a filling placed. Our team is experienced in
performing root canals and have undergone specialized training to do so. Your comfort and
safety always come first in our office.

Root canal therapy can improve the quality of your life by limiting the spread of infection,
saving your natural teeth, and reducing recurring toothaches. Prior to treatment, our team will
answer any questions you might have about the procedure.
