You need root canal therapy when the pulp inside a tooth becomes inflamed or infected. This inflammation can damage the root canal, which provides nutrients to the tooth. And the pressure caused by the inflammation can be very painful.
Come to McDonald Family Dentistry for a root canal in Urbandale, IA. Root canal therapy removes the infected or inflamed pulp, cleans the root canal, and seals the remaining area to protect the canal. Don’t let the procedure worry you—advances in modern dentistry have made root canals much more comfortable for patients.
