Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is something most people have heard of and feared but never truly understood. Dental Greetings at Virginia is here to try and change that!
We will talk you through the procedure from start to finish so you feel comfortable knowing that your tooth can be fixed and it is really not that scary. Root canal treatment is required normally when the tooth has had severe decay, so a very big whole, or their has been some form of trauma historically which has resulted an issue with the nerve, what we like to call the root canal.
So root canal treatment is just the process of treating the nerve that is inside the tooth. Once that is done your tooth any pain associated with the tooth should all be gone!
The main issue with root canal treatment is that the tooth is usually very weak because of the hole that caused the problem in the first place, which is why crowns are recommended for long term success.
