Ease The Toothache In Austin

Are you suffering from a toothache? Is a toothache keeping you from eating certain foods? Is a toothache giving you a headache or neck pain? There can be many reasons why you have these issues, but it may be that you need a root canal.

What is a Root Canal?

Root canals, which are rather routine restorative dentistry procedures, are often the prescribed treatment for a variety of dental issues, including toothache. Why? Because root canals save teeth that would otherwise be so infected they may fall out or need to be extracted. A root canal basically treats the root pulp that is inside your tooth. This root pulp was necessary for you as a child. It helped your teeth grow healthily. But after adulthood, the root pulp is actually unnecessary and can become infected. Root canals go into the tooth, remove the infection and then fill that pocket in your tooth with medicine and fill it with a material that seals the tooth. Oftentimes after this, the tooth is then topped with a dental crown or a dental filling.

Besides a toothache, root canals can treat a variety of other issues.
