At AP Dental & Laser Center, we perform a number of different dental procedures and one of them is a root canal. One of the most common questions that we get asked is “what is a root canal?” Here is a step by step guide on what a root canal is and what you can expect during your root canal procedure.
A root canal is a quick and easy procedure that is performed by your dentist which helps relieve any pain you have from the tooth and will help save your natural tooth. Saving your natural tooth should always be the first priority for a lot of reasons including you are able to chew more efficiently, you’ll keep your normal biting force/sensation, nothing will be able to look as natural as your own natural teeth, and it will help protect your natural teeth.
If you think you need a root canal or have any questions about the procedure feel free to contact us online or give us a call at 617-315-1515. You can also ask any questions about a root canal procedure you have to our dentists or dental hygienists at your next appointment.
