Root Canal Treatment in Bethlehem, PA
A root canal procedure is also known as endodontics. Root canal therapy is required when tooth decay has breached the outer enamel and contaminated the pulp of the tooth.
As much as possible, you should keep your natural teeth to avoid extractions. This is because voids left by missing natural teeth force the remaining teeth to fill up. Your bite may then be affected, leading to a number of connected problems.
But what happens if a tooth becomes infected right in the middle? Usually, an extraction cannot be avoided because the pulp is infected. In essence, this shows that the tooth’s central nerves are progressively dying. Not to mention the fact that you will likely experience severe pain.
Most patients in these circumstances want to have their teeth extracted as a quick fix. Even while extraction can remove the problematic tooth, it is not the best long-term option. Our preferred starting point is root canal therapy. The tooth can be saved and the infection treated in this way.
