Root Canals Overview
The need for root canals is most commonly caused by an untreated cavity. A root canal is recommended when the nerve, or pulp, has been severely damaged or has become infected. Pulp inside the tooth may be inflamed from trauma or extensive restorative work. Inflammation may be caused by a tooth being filled too frequently. The most common and obvious symptom of a tooth needing a root canal is tooth pain. Root canals often save an infected tooth from extraction by removing the nerve and replacing it with a strengthening agent. Dr. Sunjay Lad and Dr. Chiman Lad are both very professional and experienced doctors in Endodontic treatments. Let Lad Family Dentistry be your first choice in your oral hygiene.

My Root Canal Experience At Lad Family Dentistry Wasn’t Painful At All
“I have had to have a few root canals in my life and they were not pleasant experiences. So when I started to feel sensitive to hot and cold liquids on my tooth, I searched for a dentist that also offered sedation. Dr. Sunjay Lad walked me through all my sedation options. When it came time for the root canal, it truly was painless…I napped right on through it. I am so glad I took the time to find Lad Family Dentistry.”

Save the Tooth… With a Root Canal!
Root canal procedures are designed to remove decayed or dead pulp from the central part of your tooth, reshaping the canal and replacing it with strengthening material. When the enamel of your tooth becomes decayed, it causes a cavity, and if left untreated, it can cause extensive damage to your tooth structure. When this damage goes beyond what can be treated with a filling, Dr. Chiman Lad or Dr. Sunjay Lad can perform a root canal or endodontic therapy. Having the root canal will allow you to retain your original tooth’s integrity and save the tooth, when in the past, it would have been pulled.

Advantages and Disadvantages of a Root Canal
There are many advantages to having a root canal as opposed to pulling your tooth. Some of them are: the relief of all pain and discomfort; the ability to salvage part of your own tooth; treatment that is less expensive than some other options and the protection against shifting teeth if one is extracted. Some disadvantages are: after the root canal, the tooth is no longer vital and may become brittle; more expensive than a tooth extraction; and more complicated than a tooth extraction.
