Are Root Canals Dangerous?

When you think of a root canal, you may have heard rumors about root canals being scary and dangerous. On the contrary, root canals are a safe and effective way to help save your smile and actually can help get rid of pain, not cause it. Dr. Kawal Sasan and Dr. Steve Cremasco at Central Guelph Dentistry in Guelph, ON, can explain how root canals can help save your smile and keep it healthy and free of decay.

How Root Canals Can Help Your Smile

Root canals might seem scary and dangerous, but they’re actually really safe and don’t cause pain, but actually relieve it. When you have a tooth that is infected and damaged by decay, root canals from your dentist in Guelph, ON, are your best chance of saving that tooth.

When the inside of the tooth, also known as the pulp, is infected, this can cause severe pain and will cause your tooth to start decaying and become damaged. A root canal can help save your tooth and rid it of the infected pulp, giving your tooth a fresh start.

First, your dentist will numb the affected area, giving you as much comfort as they can provide. This helps ease any worries you may have and can keep you feeling totally relaxed through the procedure. They will then create a small opening in your tooth to expose the infected pulp. Once the infected pulp is removed, your dentist will completely clean the tooth and fill it with a rubber-like material to help prevent any future infection. The tooth will then be closed and you should start noticing a reduction in pain very quickly.
