A root canal is the process by which a dentist cleans out the inside nerves of a tooth then replaces it with material sealing the inside of the root. This is to prevent infection spreading.
Once the root canal is completed, a dentist will recommend having a dental crown be placed on the tooth to offer the tooth strength and speak more comfortably. Since a root canal involves removing nerve tissue from a tooth and hollowing out the inside of it, it may be more vulnerable to being fractured easily.
For options on root canals at Eagles Nest Family Dentistry, you can inquire about this service in our office.
