It is easy to feel scared or anxious when the subject of root canal therapy is brought up. After all, this has traditionally been regarded as being among the most difficult and stressful types of dental treatment.
Thankfully, times have changed and advances in dental technology now mean that root canal work is far less intimidating for patients than it used to be. In addition, when you visit your Kennewick dentist you will be happy to see that this type of therapy has an impressive success rate of over 95%.
Root canals are needed when a tooth has become infected or abscessed. It can also be necessary if the tooth is badly decayed or injured, as well as when a nerve has been damaged. While this type of dental procedure might seem daunting, it is often the most sensible way to try and save a tooth. The only viable alternative in most cases is to extract it and replace it with an implant, bridge or partial denture. If left untreated, this type of problem can lead to serious issues such as swelling of the face and neck, loss of the tooth, and the infection affecting the gums, cheek or skin.
• Pain when chewing
• Sensitivity to heat or cold

Thankfully, the right type of treatment in time will make sure that these symptoms disappear and that you can enjoy life to the full once again without and dental concerns. There is no longer any reason to delay a visit to the dentist because of a fear of root canal therapy.
