A “root canal” is a term used to describe an area in the center of the tooth which contains a soft area known as the pulp chamber which houses the nerves of a tooth. If this area becomes irritated or infected due to cavities, trauma or decay, root canal therapy is necessary.
Despite the traditional stigma of root canal therapy being painful and something one hopes to avoid having done, it can actually be a pain-free, quick and a relatively comfortable procedure. In fact, it relieves your pain and can prevent more complicated oral issues down the road. Here at Severns Dentistry, we strive to keep you as comfortable as possible throughout the entire procedure. Don’t continue to live in pain or let your fears get the better of you. Contact us today, and receive relief in a comfortable, pain-free environment.
