Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is infected or the tooth has been damaged. In order to save a tooth and to prevent further damage to surrounding teeth and gum tissue, the pulp inside the tooth must be removed and filled with a special, medicated material that will restore the tooth to its full function. At Family & Cosmetic Dental Care, we offer endodontic treatments such as root canals for patients who have a damaged tooth. For your complete health, it is important that you have any tooth that is damaged or infected treated immediately. The mouth is full of living tissues, and an infection that is not treated can travel quickly through the blood stream to the heart, kidneys, and other vital organs.
Root canal therapy is a restorative dental treatment that can be used to save and restore a tooth. During root canal therapy an opening will be made at the top of the tooth and a series of root canal files will be placed into the opening. These files will remove the pulp, nerve tissue, and any bacteria and/or infection that is present. Once the tooth is thoroughly cleaned, it will be sealed with a permanent filling in order to prevent further infection from developing. The entire procedure is done without pain to the patient due to the state of the art dental technologies used at Family & Cosmetic Dental Care.
If you are suffering from tooth pain, swelling or tenderness of the gums, or extreme tooth sensitivity, call Family & Cosmetic Dental Care today. Prompt treatment can help prevent additional dental procedures and can ultimately help save your tooth. We will determine if you need root canal therapy during your visit and will thoroughly explain your treatment plan. We look forward to helping to restore you smile and the health of your entire mouth.
