Root Canal Treatment Can Save Your Smile
At Battle Creek Family Dentistry, we know that root canal treatment has the potential to save a tooth that’s significantly infected, injured, or decayed. Left untreated, this infection can lead to severe pain, swelling, and more.
When is root canal treatment necessary?
Root canal treatment may be necessary if your tooth has experienced severe decay, injury or trauma, and/or a significant fracture or crack. In some cases, patients can also have a genetic predisposition to significant decay that causes them to require root canal treatment.
What are the benefits of this procedure?
In addition to relieving pain and preventing further damage, this procedure enables your tooth to stay in place, preventing the need for extraction. It also helps prevent infection from spreading to nearby teeth and gums.
How long does it take to recover from root canal treatment?
Most people experience immediate relief following root canal treatment, although there may be some discomfort and swelling in the area for a few days. During this time, it is important to practice good oral hygiene habits such as gently brushing and flossing, as well as eating softer foods.
