Root canal treatment isn’t something to be feared. Modern techniques have made the procedure itself much more comfortable, and the end result is that you’ll find relief from any pain that you were suffering due to a pulp infection. At Admired Smiles Dental Center, Dr. Hegazi always performs root canal treatment with a personalized, gentle touch; if you have a toothache, we encourage you to call us for an appointment as soon as possible for pain-relieving root canal treatment at our Hingham, MA dental office.
The most common reason for root canal is severe decay that has reached the point where bacteria have started to attack the pulp. Once that happens, a filling will not be enough to reverse the damage; the pulp will have to be removed in order to preserve the tooth. You may also need a root canal if your tooth has been cracked or fractured, which could allow bacteria to very easily enter the pulp chamber.
