Root canal therapy is a general dental treatment which is often essential in order to repair infected teeth. When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected, the sufferer will experience a severe toothache. However, this type of tooth infection is highly unlikely to clear on its own, which is why root canal therapy is often necessary. There is an unfair perception that a root canal procedure is extremely painful. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, the recovery time after root canal therapy is relatively short when compared to many other dental treatments.
If you do not have root canal therapy carried out on an infected tooth, the infection will likely spread. The result of a spreading infection in the pulp of a tooth may include losing the tooth, or the infection moving into other teeth and even the gums. When you consider how much pain such an out of control infection could cause, it becomes clear why root canal therapy is the best option for treating the infection.

Root canals remove infected pulp, allowing Dr. Midgette to fill and then reseal the tooth. Once you have recovered, which typically takes no more than a week, you will feel complete relief from the pain associated with the infection. There is no reason to continue suffering in silence when a root canal can offer you a solution to your severe tooth pain.
