Three Key Benefits Of A Root Canal

In light of root canal awareness week, our dentists want to highlight why a client might pursue this treatment and how they could benefit from it. Root canals attempt to salvage what is left after tooth decay is removed from an infected tooth. It might not sound like the most pleasant treatment to undergo, but doing so can protect the rest of your natural teeth from experiencing further decay and loss of functionality completely.

Root Canal


To highlight the benefits and importance of a root canal treatment, our dentists have listed three key facts about this procedure you should know:

  1. Relieves pain:
    1. Dental pain, especially when it involves a decaying tooth, can be one of the most painful things a person can experience. One of the main reasons for getting a root canal is to relieve pain and allow a person to eat and drink without worry anymore.
  2. Saves the tooth:
    1. A root canal is often recommended when part of a tooth is severely damaged or infected. While not guaranteed in all cases, a root canal is theoretically able to salvage at least part of your tooth.
    2. A dentist will be able to make the call on whether a root canal is worth pursuing instead of tooth extraction. Once the infected or damaged pulp is removed, the remainder of your natural tooth is cleaned and disinfected. Then, a filling or crown is applied to the remaining tooth so the person can have a protected and functional tooth again.
  3. Improves your overall health:
    1. A root canal can help improve your overall oral health. When a tooth is infected, it can lead to other health problems within your mouth, sinuses, or connected organ systems. Gum disease, heart disease, cognitive issues, and sinus infections can all occur as a result of an untreated tooth facing decay.

If you’re facing tooth pain from infected pulp and looking to save your natural tooth, look no further than Reilly & Siegel Family Dental to help you. Our dentists have performed numerous root canal therapies for patients of all ages. We’re always ready to help you. Give us a call now.
