When you hear the words “root canal,” what comes to mind? It’s probably something unpleasant, which is unfair.
Root canals are quite beneficial. Plus, the procedure isn’t nearly as bad as television and movies would have you believe. Here are three reasons you may want to visit our office in Tigard, OR for this restorative service.
1. Stop the Pain
That toothache that woke you up or interrupted your business lunch is the result of a tooth infection. A root canal is how we remove the infected tissue that is causing you pain.
2. Save Your Tooth
Without a root canal, you are at risk of needing your tooth removed. A root canal can save you compared to the cost of extracting and replacing that tooth.
3. Restore Your Smile
As part of your procedure, we fill your infected tooth with a special material that reinforces it. That allows us to cap your tooth with a dental crown to make it look as good as new.
