At Guatemala Dental Team, our dentists take the time to examine the root of your tooth, detect the problem, and provide the optimal treatment. We understand that a root canal procedure typically evokes thoughts of fear and pain for most patients. That’s why our dentists work hard to put you at ease during your procedure and make you feel as comfortable and cared for as possible.
A root canal, or endodontic surgery, is necessary to save a tooth when the pulp inside the tooth has become inflamed or infected. Severe decay, repeated dental procedures on a tooth, or a cracked or chipped tooth can cause damage to the pulp inside the tooth. Most patients will notice a throbbing pain that gets progressively worse, often signaling that a root canal is necessary to repair the problem.
After your root canal procedure, the pain in your tooth will be gone. With proper care, your repaired tooth will function normally for years to come.
