Did you know that a root canal can end toothaches and save your teeth? Chronic tooth pain is often caused by an infection inside a tooth. This often happens when a cavity gets too deep, opening the way for harmful bacteria. Not only is it painful, it can make your tooth so brittle that it needs to be removed.
Root canals are a restorative dentistry treatment that can remove those infections. This can end the toothache and, once a dental crown is placed, make sure the tooth isn’t so brittle. Dr. Ki understand you might be worried about the pain. Between her skill and local anesthetic, getting a root canal procedure is no more painful than getting a filling.
That’s right. Root canals don’t cause pain — they relieve it. Call our Fairfax, VA dental office today and schedule your next appointment.
