There’s no need to fear this simple procedure
At Great Lakes Family Dental Group in Livonia, Michigan, we offer root canal procedures and other forms of endodontic treatments and therapies.
Many people have heard of root canals, but don’t know exactly what they are -- or why they’re sometimes needed. Well, inside every tooth, there is a pulp -- comprised of sensitive nerves, arterioles, and tissues. This pulp can be damaged through trauma, like an injury or become decayed, and then your tooth requires a root canal.
Don’t be alarmed if you need a root canal. It’s a simple procedure where your dentist works to save an injured tooth by extracting the damaged pulp and sealing off the space. It’s quick and relatively painless -- and saves your tooth from extraction.
