Root Canal Treatment
An endodontic treatment saves a severely injured, cracked, or decayed tooth when its pulp (the soft inner tissue inside a tooth's root canal) becomes inflamed or infected. If it is not treated promptly, pain or a tooth abscess results.
Our experts works to save damaged or decayed teeth through root canal therapy using the latest rotary equipment and techniques. They have many years of experience in this particular dental technique and will provide you with the best treatment available.
Endodontic treatment is also known as a "root canal” . Root canal treatment is completed in one or two office visits, depending on the presence of infection and the required treatment plan. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth. With good oral hygiene, the restored tooth has the potential to last a lifetime.
Symptoms and Warning Signs :
See your Dentist if you experience any of these symptoms:
•Tooth or gum pain that wakes you up at night , discoloration, or prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold
•A tooth that is tender when it is touched
•A tooth abscess (pus enclosed in the tissues of the jawbone at the tip of an infected tooth)
• swelling in your mouth releasing blood and pus
•Swelling or tenderness in the lymph nodes under your jaw
Sometimes an endodontic problem can exist without warning signs. In these cases, an x-ray taken during a routine dental checkup will reveal the tooth damage.
Root canal treatment involves the removal of the diseased pulp along with the tooth's nerve (located within a tooth's root canal). The pulp chamber and root canal(s) of your tooth are then cleaned, medicated and sealed. A dental crown or other restorative treatment is used to protect and strengthen the tooth.
