May 6th through 12th is National Root Canal Awareness week as well as May 8th being National Root Canal Day. Although nobody ever really wants a root canal, this tooth-saving procedure can put an end to pain for patients and give them their smile back. Root Canals are not only completed to save teeth. A tooth isn’t just enamel; it also contains nerves and tissue that can become infected or inflamed. Sometimes a patient is not aware of pain, even if a root canal is needed. Maintaining regular dental care can help prevent and/or detect the need for Root Canal Treatment. Call our office to get scheduled today.
