Root Canal Therapy Saves Damaged Smiles
Sometimes, because of decay or an injury, bacteria can find its way deep inside of a tooth, causing an infection. When this happens, a patient may experience severe pain or sensitivity to hot and cold foods. If left untreated, it’s possible for the tooth to be lost.
Thankfully, a tooth with this kind of problem can be saved with a straight forward root canal procedure. During a root canal, your dentist will clean out the interior of the tooth, remove any traces of bacteria and infection along with the tooth’s nerve, and fill it with a safe substance. Then, once the inside of the tooth is clean, your dentist will place a protective crown over it, restoring its strength, structure, and appearance. With today’s technology, a root canal is now a simple and painless procedure. In just a single appointment, we can address your situation and restore your oral health and wellbeing.
