About Root Canal Consultation
If the pulp inside a tooth becomes inflamed or infected, your dentist may recommend setting up a root canal consultation with an expert endodontist. Any type of infection of the tooth pulp cannot be ignored and if left untreated, can escalate into even more problems.
The first step to getting the treatment you need is to set up a root canal consultation. During your consultation, the dentist will explain how the procedure works and what to expect during and after treatment. He or she may show you a diagram of an infected tooth and explain how the diseased pulp is removed from the tooth during the procedure. This is a good time to ask the dentist any questions you have about treatment, and share concerns you might have about the root canal procedure.
