What You Need to Know about Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy may be needed to save teeth and avoid extractions. It involves removing infected pulp from inside a tooth and resealing the tooth.

Key takeaways:

– Regular checkups allow your dentist to spot early signs of decay and treat with simple fillings.

– Chips and cracks can allow bacteria to enter a tooth and should be repaired.

– Discoloured patches can indicate problems and should be assessed.

Pain is usually a sign of a dental issue but sometimes there are no symptoms, so regular dental examinations are vital.
