A root canal is a common procedure that’s often recommended when a tooth has become infected or severely damaged. During the procedure, the pulp of a tooth is removed. The tooth is then sterilized, sealed, and a protective crown is placed over the tooth to restore the tooth’s function and appearance. While the procedure is commonly performed and is an effective treatment, many people remain concerned about the length of time a root canal will last. As your trusted dentist, we have everything you need to know about receiving a root canal in Trumbull.
