Root Canal Therapy in Carrollton
A severely damaged tooth can cause discomfort and threaten your health. When a tooth experiences major trauma or extensive decay, Dr. Campbell may recommend a root canal. During the procedure, Dr. Campbell will remove the infection, replace the pulp, and seal the tooth to prevent future problems.
Many people cringe at this idea because they mistakenly believe that a root canal causes pain. The actual irritation comes from the pressure and inflammation that build up inside a tooth. After root canal therapy, patients often feel better and only have some mild soreness, which over-the-counter analgesics can control. Furthermore, an untreated infection will only worsen to cause more serious problems. Oftentimes, a root canal is the only alternative to tooth extraction.
