Root Canals

Root Canal Treatments in Bethlehem, PA

Endodontics is another name for the procedure of a root canal. When tooth decay has penetrated the outer enamel and infected the tooth’s pulp, root canal therapy is necessary.

Your original teeth should be kept as much as possible in order to prevent extractions. This is because missing natural teeth leave spaces, which force the remaining teeth to fill up. It may then have an impact on your bite and result in a variety of related issues.

But what occurs when a tooth develops an infection smack in the middle? Usually, because the pulp is diseased, an extraction cannot be avoided. This basically indicates that the nerves at the center of the tooth are gradually dying. Not to mention the fact that you’ll probably be in a lot of pain as well.

In these situations, the majority of patients desire dental extraction as a rapid remedy. Even while extraction can get rid of the problem tooth, it is not the greatest solution over time. We like to start with root canal therapy. In this manner, the infection can be treated and the tooth preserved.
