It hurts when you eat. It hurts when you talk. Sometimes it just hurts.
An infected tooth isn’t fun for anyone, but you can do something about it. You can get a root canal treatment at our Nashua, NH dental office. If you have anxiety thinking about a root canal, we want to address your concerns.
What is a root canal?
Root canals are openings in the roots of your teeth where nerves and blood vessels reach the interior of your tooth. Root canal treatments are a procedure to remove infected tissue from your tooth.
Are root canal treatments painful?
Today, this treatment can be completed with little, if any, pain during the procedure. Using a combination of local anesthetic, dental sedation, and modern techniques can remove the infection from your mouth. This also allows us to restore the damaged tooth so you can eat and more without pain shortly after your recovery.
When is a root canal needed?
Root canals are necessary when pulp (a soft tissue inside your tooth) becomes inflamed due to exposure to harmful bacteria. Root canals also can be done to prevent an infection if you have a large cavity or a deep crack or break in one of your teeth.
