What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a dental procedure in which the nerve and pulp is removed from a tooth’s root canal. The area is cleaned and replaced with an inert material and sealed. The goal of a root canal is to save the tooth. Root canals are a very common procedure and have a very successful outcome. Sadly, many people cannot afford root canals and often times decide on an extraction.

What happens if I don’t get a root canal?

If a dentist decides that a root canal is needed, and the tooth is NOT treated, it will most likely become an abscessed tooth. The abscessed tooth can be extraordinarily painful and usually need treatment immediately.

What should I do if I don’t have dental insurance and I need a root canal?
