Should I Have a Root Canal Done?

Article written by Elite Dental Group.

You may have been in lately to see your dentist about a problem tooth only to be told that you need a root canal. People typically don’t like the idea of getting a root canal done on a tooth. This procedure takes a while, recovery can be painful and the procedure is usually expensive. So why would you have one done?

The most basic reason is to save the tooth. Certain teeth are more important than others. For instance, the upper and lower molars are used to grind up your food when chewing. This is an important part of having a healthy digestive system. Your food must be well chewed before swallowing.

Other teeth are there so we’ll have a beautiful smile. People who have a great smile are usually more confident than those who don’t. If our teeth are crooked, spaced out or growing in at an angle, this can be expensive to fix. You may need braces.

Saving your teeth is a good goal and the reason for dentistry to exist. Our teeth must last well into old age, which could be up to 90 years. Especially when we’re younger, we may not always brush, floss and take care of our teeth as we should. This can lead to a place where we may need a root canal to save a tooth that is crucial.
