Root canal treatment is highly effective in restoring teeth with interior infections. We will provide top-quality root canal treatment to relieve pain and repair your damaged tooth.
Root canal treatment is often the only way to save a damaged tooth when it has developed a serious interior infection. The inside portion of your tooth is normally protected by the hard enamel exterior on the tooth’s outer surface. But a deep cavity or oral injury can allow harmful bacteria to reach a tooth’s inner pulp and cause a serious infection. Receiving proper treatment is crucial in this situation, as the tooth will otherwise rot out from the inside and die. That is why it is very important for patients to receive root canal treatment as soon as it is recommended.
Some of the symptoms that are commonly associated with an infected root canal include intense pain, sensitivity to hot and cold, tender and swollen lymph nodes and recurrent abscesses.
When performing a root canal treatment, we use advanced dental equipment to carefully access the tooth’s inner structure. We then remove any infectious material that is causing harm. The root canals are then flushed out using an antimicrobial liquid to eliminate any lingering bacteria. A medicated filling substance is then applied to the hollowed structure to restore the tooth’s structure and integrity. The repaired tooth will then be capped with a protective dental crown to prevent any fractures or breakages during recovery. It will usually take a few days to a full week for healing to occur. After that, the tooth can be used normally.
Root canal treatment is a dental procedure used to restore teeth that have developed infections inside the pulp of the tooth. The treatment involves accessing the inside of the tooth to remove any material that is causing harm.
