Root canal therapy is here to help
The term ‘root canal’ used to have the power to keep even the strongest away from the dentist’s office. However, thanks to modern technology and local anesthetics, most root canals are performed with little to no pain. If a root canal is recommended, it’s to treat infections and prevent loss of your tooth. When a tooth becomes infected, nerves then need to be removed. If left untreated, it can turn into an abscess, which is a more serious problem that includes bone loss in the jaw. At Hope Dental, our team will be here to provide you with comfort and ease every step of the way.
