Prevention Is Better Than Cure

A root canal is often performed when the soft inner part of the tooth (known as the pulp) is injured or inflamed. 

If left untreated, patients run the risk of getting an infection or developing an abscess. This leads to pulp death, bone loss and severe pain.

The crown of the tooth can remain intact even when the decaying pulp is removed. Removing this inner section is the best way to preserve the structure of the tooth and reduce pain.
