Root Canals

Dentist in Towson

Root canals are often recommended when decay has reached the nerve of your tooth. During a root canal, a dentist has the ability to remove the nerve of the tooth. He or she will also remove any decay existing in the enamel and pulp layers of tooth structure.

Root canals are often done in order to save a deeply decayed tooth. They get a bad rap and are often referred to as painful procedures. With today’s pain management technology, root canals don’t have to be painful.

After a root canal, your doctor will most likely recommend a crown to protect and restore the tooth. This is an essential part of the procedure. Without the crown, bacteria in your mouth can travel into your blood stream. The remaining tooth structure can also encounter more decay, chipping or breaking.

For more information about a root canal, speak to your dentist or endodontist.
