Left untreated, damaged, inflamed or infected root canals can result in more extreme complications such as abscesses, infections, missing teeth or even sepsis (an infection of the blood). Although many people think root canals are painful, advancements in dentistry have made this less of a problem. During your root canal treatment, any infection or damage is thoroughly removed, and the root canal is cleaned. The root canal will then be filled to prevent further damage or infection. We do recommend you have a dental crown placed after your root canal therapy to ensure your tooth is as protected as possible.
