If you want to know all there is to know about root canal treatment, then our dentist, Dr. A. Agustin Vega, is more than happy to help you. Knowing about root canals and other dental treatments can help you in a myriad of ways. So, to expand your knowledge about root canal treatment in Olympia, Washington, our dentist is happy to share the following root canal facts with you:

-Root canal treatment is needed when a tooth is badly injured, decayed or infected. This might be because of one or more cavities, oral injury and severe oral infection.

-During root canal treatment, our dentist will remove the nerve and pulp of the tooth and then clean and seal the tooth. If needed, a dental crown will be placed over the tooth to protect it.

-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.
