What Happens During A Root Canal
Why You Need One
A root canal or endodontic treatment becomes necessary when the root of the tooth becomes abscessed or infected. In the past, this meant an extraction. Either you ended up with a gap in your mouth that could lead to jaw problems, or, depending on your budget, you got an artificial tooth. Today, dentists strive to ensure their patients retain their teeth because it’s been proven that by keeping all your teeth, you’ll live a longer and happier life.
