5 Benefits of Root Canal Procedures

Posted by Silver Summit Dental on May 11 2021, 08:56 AM

According to the American Academy of Endodontics, a root canal procedure is an efficient and cost-effective way to save your natural teeth.

At Silver Summit Dental in Herriman, Utah, we deliver safe and comfortable dental procedures for patients of all ages, including root canals. In this blog, we’re taking a closer look at the many benefits of root canal procedures.

Benefits of a Root Canal Procedure

Apart from the obvious clinical reasons, namely getting rid of the tooth infection, a root canal procedure also offers plenty of other practical benefits for patients. The most notable of them are:

  • It Is Virtually Pain-Free

With the help of modern techniques and general anesthesia, what was once a painful and uncomfortable experience is now easy and painless. The only slight discomfort you may feel after a root canal is once the effects of the anesthesia wear off. However, the feeling will subside in no time.

  • It Saves Your Natural Tooth

Having a tooth infection no longer means you have to lose that tooth. The main goal of a root canal procedure is to save your natural tooth and prevent the infection from causing further damage. By performing a root canal procedure, we can help restore your tooth to its original condition and make it function properly.

  • It Prevents the Infection From Spreading

Tooth infections cause harmful bacteria to eat away at the tooth root, causing pain, swelling, and sometimes bleeding. When left untreated, the infection can spread to the neighboring teeth.

A root canal treats the cause of the infection and effectively clears out all the infection-causing bacteria to restore your tooth to its original state.

  • It Offers an Aesthetically Appealing Result

A root canal procedure involves treating the pulp, nerves, and blood vessels inside a tooth and ends with a crown or dental filling. The procedure enhances your appearance and your smile. 

  • It Prevents Jawbone Erosion

When your tooth is infected, the gum tissue and the jawbone that support the tooth will start to deteriorate. Over time, this can cause several complications. A root canal can prevent the infection from spreading to the jawbone and gums.
