Root canals are one of the most common dental procedures performed in the United States. When patients come in with pain or a broken tooth, Dr. Steinbicker performs a thorough examination including x-rays to determine your diagnosis.
When teeth become necrotic or the nerve is severely inflamed often times a root canal can be performed to save the tooth.
A necrotic tooth often hurts severely or might not hurt at all, but is far different than just having sensitive teeth. Root canals are typically pain free. Teeth that have a root canal on a chewing tooth require a crown which can be done aesthetically to restore your tooth.
