With Thanksgiving coming up, this is a good time to reflect on the things we are grateful to have in our lives.
This includes our family and friends. This includes the ability to help people with the work that we do each at Edgewood Dental Care. And that work includes root canal treatments.

We understand why you might not be root canals at the top of the list of your favorite things, but we do think this service provides benefits that anyone can appreciate. It’s why we are sharing three reasons you can be thankful that this procedure is part of our restorative dentistry in Edgewood, KY. Call 859-474-7830 if this treatment could help you.

1. Stop Your Pain

Root canals are not something we just do to do them. They are a treatment for people suffering from toothaches or at risk of toothaches.

When a tooth becomes infected, that means bacteria have reached the pulp inside the tooth. This can cause the pulp to become inflamed, which can cause pain. This can be a steady soreness. This can make biting and chew difficult. It also can make your teeth much more sensitive to heat, cold, and sweet things.

By getting a root canal, you can remove the infected material from your mouth. That can get you back to being pain-free and feeling like yourself.

2. Restore Your Bite

As we noted above, a tooth infection can have a big impact on what you are able to eat. When it’s painful to bite or chew or to eat or drink certain things, you can’t enjoy meals like you once could.

Tooth decay, broken teeth, and cracked teeth can lead to infections. By repairing your tooth, you are doing more than removing a painful problem. You also are restoring the function of your damaged tooth. The final step in this procedure is usually getting a dental crown to cap your tooth.

When your tooth is fully repaired, you will be able to bite and chew without worry. You will be able to drink your morning coffee or enjoy some ice cream as a snack.

3. Renew Your Smile

The problems that lead to tooth infections also can have a big impact on your smile. A severely decayed tooth can be unattractive. A broken or cracked tooth can leave you feeling self-conscious about meeting someone new or even talking to people you already know.
With a root canal, you can have a complete, natural-looking smile once again.
