When a tooth is badly decayed or infected, a root canal may be the best option to treat the infection and save the tooth. In most cases, we’d prefer to save the tooth rather than extract it and replace it, and root canals make this possible.
We recognize that you’ve probably heard a lot of negative commentary about root canals, but we want to assure you that modern techniques and instruments have made root canals into an efficient, comfortable, and effective routine procedure. In fact, most people tell us that their root canal was much simpler than they thought it was going to be!
Are you in pain? Do you think you might need a root canal? Royal Palm Beach dentist Dr. Elkind can diagnose your condition and provide a recommendation as to the most appropriate treatment to relieve your pain and restore function to your tooth.
