National Root Canal Appreciation Day is annually celebrated on the second Wednesday of every May.
Root canal procedures and root canal treatment aid in saving teeth by clearing them of infection and preventing cavities. The goal of this day is to educate people about this procedure and appreciate how dentists treat everyone's teeth.
The exterior of your tooth is hard, while the inside is soft, containing nerves and blood vessels. You may suffer significant pain if there is nerve damage. This infected tooth in this state is prone to falling out if it is not treated. The bone that surrounds the soon-to-be treated tooth may also be damaged.
The root canal technique entails the removal of the infected dental pulp, the filling of the tooth, and the crowning of the tooth. Pre-sterilized roots are essential for the process. Root canals help keep smiles healthy.
