Root canal treatment
is necessary when the pulp (soft tissue inside your teeth containing blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue) becomes inflamed or diseased. During root canal treatment, Dr.Sanchez
removes the diseased pulp.
If you continue to care for your teeth and gums, your restored tooth could last a lifetime. However, regular checkups are necessary since a tooth without its nerve can still develop cavities or gum disease. Most of the time a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involving one to three visits. Best of all, it can save your tooth and your smile!
