The pulp is located in the middle of your tooth. The pulp, which is made up of nerves and blood vessels, aids in the development of the tooth's enamel. Trauma to the tooth, severe decay, chips, and cracks, or frequent dental operations can all lead to pulp infection. Visible damage or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to heat or cold, or tooth and gum pain can all be signs of an infection.
Regardless of the reason for root canal treatment, irritation of the tooth's nerve leads to an infection or abscess, which puts pressure and discomfort on the tooth's nerve.
Some teeth's pulp degradation occurs gradually, causing only minor discomfort. To get rid of the diseased nerve tissue, root canal treatment is necessary.
Having a root canal is beneficial in a number of ways, including:
Despite the common jest, "I'd rather have a root canal than do that!", getting a tooth filled is more painful than having a root canal. Additionally, many patients experience comfort following their session because the treatment typically reduces the pain brought on by the infection.
Call our office to schedule an evaluation if you have severe toothaches or extreme sensitivity to heat and cold.
Our caring dental experts will do a complete dental examination and collect scans to identify the location and extent of your tooth infection. A numbing medication is first applied during treatment to keep you as comfortable as possible.
In order to reduce your nervousness and help you feel more at ease throughout the treatment, we can provide nitrous oxide sedation. You'll be able to answer the dentist's inquiries and follow his or her directions because you'll still be awake.
In order to prevent additional decay or infection, we will fill the cavity with a temporary or permanent filling after we are confident that the tooth is free of infection. The tooth must have a dental crown as the last stage to restore its full functionality.
Usually, it takes two weeks to create a personalized crown. The crown is created to have the same size, shape, and colour as the rest of your teeth. Additionally, our staff will provide you with after-appointment care recommendations.
We are accepting new patients, and are proud to offer gum tissue contouring and other cosmetic procedures. Our aim is to ensure that all of our patients are happy with a new smile.
