    FLINT, MI, May 18, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Most people dread hearing the news that they have to get a root canal. It is a common dental procedure to eliminate infections in the teeth. But patients can rest assured when they visit the office of Mildred J. Tinker, DDS that they will have the most comfortable, efficient experience possible.

Root canal therapy is a procedure where a dentist removes bad bacteria from the pulp of a tooth. That bacteria form inside of the tooth for a number of reasons. Poor dental health is one of the most common causes. Also when someone does not fix a cracked tooth, it is easier for bad bacteria to enter and attack the tooth from the inside out. An untreated infection inside of a tooth makes it painful, discolored and could eventually lead to the loss of that tooth.

After treatment with Flint root canal dentist, Dr. Mildred Tinker, the patient has a better chance of preserving the original tooth. In some cases the patient may need to have a crown placed on top of the affected tooth to cover up any imperfections or discoloration.

The pulp is the inner chamber, receiving nutrients to strengthen the tooth. Root canals run from the pulp through the root of the tooth and then down into the gums. The goal of a root canal therapy is to clear the pulp of an infection before it completely destroys the rooted tooth.

Next to drillings and fillings, root canal therapies are among the most feared procedures among patients. Dr. Tinker wants to reassure candidates for root canals that they are in the hands of a consummate professional'. Root canal therapy has a high rate of success and is a preferred alternative to extraction. Many people experience little to no pain during this procedure and Flint root canal dentist, Dr. Tinker, also specializes in teeth whitening, veneers and dentures.
