Why a Root Canal

Thanks to advances in dentistry, we can salvage most badly infected teeth with a root canal. Millions of root canals are performed annually around the globe. At Mekari Dental Studio & Spa in Metairie, we perform root canals with state-of-the-art equipment and contemporary, efficient procedures.

Modern root canals are now similar to a routine cavity filling and can usually be completed within 1-2 appointments. It all depends on the condition of your tooth. It’s a relatively painless and effective procedure. It’s always best to preserve the natural tooth when possible.

Patients need a root canal due to specific injuries, a deep cavity, genetics, or even for sensitive teeth. Here are the signs of potentially needing a root canal: 

  • A chipped/cracked tooth
  • Gum pimples
  • Gums that are swollen and/or tender
  • Gum decay/darkening
  • Lingering temperature sensitivity
  • Severe pain while chewing or biting

Extracting a tooth may seem easier and more cost effective, but it’s actually far more expensive to deal with missing teeth. Your mouth doesn’t like gaps, so teeth will shift to fill up the space, which then impedes your ability to chew and messes up your smile. So instead of one problem to fix, you end up having three, all thanks to that gap.
