If you have been suffering from a chronic toothache or sudden throbbing pain in a tooth, root canal therapy can offer you fast relief while retaining a healthy tooth appearance.
Some people still cling to the false notion that root canal therapy is painful; on the contrary, this procedure relieves pain. With today’s array of anesthetics, the procedure does not cause discomfort. By removing nerves from the pulp of a tooth, our endodontists relieve that source of pain.
Overall, root canal treatment can greatly improve your oral health and comfort. It can help you return to a fulfilling daily routine. Here are a few key advantages to undergoing this common endodontic therapy.
When to Consider Root Canal Therapy
The decision to utilize root canal therapy is one you make with your dentist and endodontist. Symptoms that might warrant closer examination include:
- Severe pain when chewing or biting
- Tender or swollen gums
- A cracked or chipped tooth
- Tooth sensitivity to cold or heat that lingers even after exposure
- Pimple-type bumps on the gums
- Deep decay or a darkening of the gums
Get Fast Toothache Relief
Have you been suffering with a toothache due to infected tooth roots? Root canal therapy can help eliminate discomfort. It allows you to live your life comfortably again without the need for pain-killing medication.
Root Canal Therapy Can Save a Tooth
Endodontic therapy can save a badly infected tooth from extraction. It can also improve the appearance of your smile because a crown is placed on top of the treated tooth. This creates a healthy and attractive appearance. Our team may be able to help you retain your natural teeth through root canal therapy.
It Prevents the Spread of Infection
Ignoring an infection can cause bacteria to spread to healthy teeth and gums. During root canal therapy, the entire area surrounding the infected tooth is thoroughly cleaned. This can prevent the spread of the infection, saving you from costly additional dental work.
Experience Makes the Difference
Root canal therapy is not unlike getting a filling, with the same level of local anesthesia. It can be completed in one or two visits, depending on your condition and circumstances. Our endodontist has undergone specialized training in this procedure and is highly experienced in performing root canals. Rest assured, your comfort and safety always come first in our office.
