How Root Canals Can Help
When we can help you keep a tooth from needing extraction, we can help you keep your beautiful, full smile. A missing tooth can contribute to bone deterioration, shifting teeth that cause bite misalignment, and a decrease in the functionality of your teeth. We work efficiently and effectively, so our patients can leave our office with healthy smiles!
When Would I Need a Root Canal?
You may need a root canal if you have one or more of the following symptoms:
- Increased tooth sensitivity to hot or cold.
- Pain when biting down on foods or putting pressure on your tooth.
- Tooth discoloration, including a change to gray or brown.
- Swollen gums around the affected tooth.
- Severe, consistent pain that won’t go away and often comes with swelling.
The above symptoms can all point to infected or damaged pulp, which is the inside of the tooth. Leaving the tooth untreated can let infection spread to the jawbone and to other teeth, not to mention that your pain will continue to increase. Eventually, the infection can cause the tooth to rot away.
A root canal will not only rid you of pain, but it can save your natural tooth as well.
If you do need a root canal, our team can provide excellent care with maximum comfort. We want to help you feel as relaxed as possible while we take care of your teeth.
We’ll start with localized anesthesia followed by removal of the damaged pulp, and then we’ll clean and build up your tooth to keep it free from bacteria.
For the finishing touch, we’ll place a filling or natural looking dental crown to prevent further infection and to provide extra stability and strength for the tooth. You can get back to a normal, pain-free life and keep your teeth in the process!
