Root Canal Therapy Relieves Pain, Saves Teeth
Contrary to popular belief, having a root canal is a far more comfortable routine procedure than the reputation it has received over the years. Many patients put off, or altogether avoid, seeking the root canal treatment they need due to fear of a painful procedure or uncomfortable recovering period. However, root canal therapy is a solution that effectively relieves tooth pain, especially with the advanced endodontic technology our team employs today.
A Root Canal Saves Your Tooth, and May Also Save Your Health
Root canal therapy saves teeth when decay has advanced into the nerve center of the tooth (pulp) or a crack in a tooth places its future in peril. Leaving infected or severely damaged teeth untreated significantly increases the risk of consequences like tooth loss, bone damage and systemic illness due to infection. Signs and symptoms, if any are present, indicating the need for a root canal include:
- Prolonged tooth pain
- Dull, persistent toothache
- Temperature sensitivity
- Pain or discomfort upon biting/chewing
- Abscessed tooth
- Facial or oral swelling
- Trauma or injury
- Darkening or discoloration of a tooth
- Cracked or broken tooth
- Asymptomatic (no symptoms)
Experience a Comfortable Return to Health Through Advanced Technology
Advanced technology has completely transformed how we perform root canals, a procedure really no different than receiving a dental filling. Throughout the root canal visit, we attend to your every need, ensuring the absence of pain and the ultimate in efficiency. Our doctors perform root canals by removing decayed, infected tissue from within your tooth, placing a soothing material to strengthen the tooth and sealing it with a sedative filling to allow for full healing. Once healed, your tooth will likely require a crown to cover and protect against further damage.
