Would you like to know all there is to know about root canals? If so, good for you! The more you know about root canals and dental care, the better. Our dentist, Dr. James Gunelson, is happy to share some root canal information with you today so you can know all about the treatment. Here are the following facts about root canal treatment in Stanley, Wisconsin:

-Root canal treatment is most often needed when a tooth is badly damaged, decayed or infected. This might be from cavities, oral injury or more.

-Root canal treatment involves our dentist removing the nerve and pulp of the tooth and then cleaning and sealing the tooth.

-Root canal treatment has the reputation of being painful, but it is no more painful than dental filling treatment. This is because numbing agents and even dental sedatives can be used during the appointment.

-If you ignore a badly damaged and decayed tooth and refuse root canal treatment, the surrounding teeth can become infected and abscesses might form.
