Root canal treatment is needed when the pulp inside the root canal is inflamed or infected. This type of inflammation is typically very painful for patients until the treatment is completed. After you get a root canal the pain will go away within 24 hours.
The treatment is pretty straight forward. We’ll drill through your tooth to get to the infected pulp, remove the pulp and clean the root, seal the tooth, and place a crown over the tooth to protect against future decay. Reach out to learn more today!
Why Do I Need Treatment?
When the tooth pulp is damaged it becomes infected and problems arise. Think of this pulp as the heart of the tooth. If it isn’t kept healthy, the tooth can not be healthy either. If left untreated, an abscess can form, spread the infection to other areas in the head, result in bone loss, or even cause draining problems that will cause swelling of the face.
To avoid any of these issues we recommend calling us when you notice symptoms of an infected root canal.
Look Out For:
- Severe toothache when chewing
- Tooth begins to discolor
- Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold
- Swollen tender gums around the tooth
- A tooth is cracked or chipped
If you notice any of these symptoms bothering you, give us a call. We’ll be happy to schedule an appointment and get you feeling better in no time.
