Need a Root Canal?
It can sometimes be an intimidating scenario when your mouth comes under agonizing pain to chew or even talk. That is why here at Orlando Smiles we make sure that every patient feels comfortable when entering our offices so that we can bring comfort to their mouths in their time of need. A very common occurrence that could bring such a sharp pain to one’s mouth is when there is a need for a root canal.
A root canal is necessary when the actual pulp and living tissue that resides inside a patient’s tooth becomes infected and begins to painfully decay. In the event of a tooth’s decaying becoming too painful and therefore hindering everyday functions, a procedure known as a root canal can be performed in order to remove the decaying tooth pulp and replace it with a synthetic gel or filling that will stop the tooth from rotting away and maintain structurally sound for the purpose of chewing and talking.
