To tell you all about root canal treatment in Wausau, Wisconsin, our dentist is happy to share the following facts with you:

-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 might sound painful, but it is not more painful than a typical dental filling treatment. This is because anesthetics and dental sedatives can be used to help you remain comfortable and calm during the appointment.

-If you refuse root canal treatment and ignore the decayed and damaged tooth, then the surrounding teeth can be affected and abscesses could form.
