Tooth Pain Relief in Lansing
Root canals are synonymous with discomfort, but this is an unfair comparison. Root canals today are actually quite comfortable thanks to modern anesthetics. In fact, root canal therapy often stops the intense pain of an infected tooth.
During a root canal, also called a pulpectomy, our dentists open the tooth to clean out the infection. They make sure to remove the tissue and nerve then fill the tooth with sterile packing material. Finally, the tooth is sealed with a crown for protection and a nice appearance.
A root canal can save a tooth that would otherwise need an extraction.
