The most common symptom that may indicate the need for root canal treatment is a toothache. The pain may affect your ability to enjoy a good night's sleep. Root canal treatment will alleviate your tooth pain and improve your well-being.

#2- It Is Virtually Pain Free

Root canals are nothing to be afraid of. People fear root canal treatments because they assume they are painful. Local anesthesia is very effective in blocking pain during a root canal procedure. Most patients report that the procedure itself is no more painful than having a dental filling placed.

#3- It Prevents Tooth Loss

In the past, diseased or injured teeth had to be removed. Today, they can usually be saved through root canal treatment. Without treatment, the tooth may have to be extracted. Saving your natural tooth is the best option.

#4- It Restores Tooth Function

Because a tooth that needs root canal treatment often is one that has extensive decay, a permanent crown often needs to be placed on the tooth to strengthen it and restore it to full function. A crown can improve your speech and help you chew better.

#5- It Has a High Success Rate

Root canal treatment has a high success rate. According to the American Association of Endodontists, endodontic treatments have a success rate of 99.3 percent. If you take good care of it, your restored tooth could last a lifetime.
