Also known as endodontics, root canal therapy helps save teeth that you might lose otherwise. It becomes necessary when there is an infection or inflammation inside the tooth, mainly when the enamel is compromised. The treatment works when any other option is not viable. It targets the inside area of the tooth and is safe for longer-lasting results. We can complete the treatment in one visit to ensure you do not deal with prolonged pain.
Common symptoms of an infected pulp include pain in gums or teeth, swelling, and increased sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. In that case, the only remedy is root canal treatment. Ignoring the signs and hoping they disappear without intervention can only lead to more damage.
Unlike previous years when getting the treatment was intimidating, it is becoming a routine dental procedure in most regions. Despite that, most patients still have concerns about root canal therapy procedures and may want to delay seeing a dentist, but that should not be the case. We strive to make it as painless as possible.
We offer the ultimate care and attention during the procedure and after-care. We are also thorough and will ensure we clean and disinfect the affected tooth properly after removing the damaged pulp. We also restore the tooth’s functionality by refilling and resealing the crown, meaning you can resume chewing naturally quickly. Our objective is to prevent extraction and the need for implants and dental bridges. We also want to keep you from experiencing such problems in the future.
We recommend that you continue with subsequent visits after the root canal therapy. Although rare, complications can arise from such procedures. Follow-up visits allow us to monitor your progress and keep problems from intensifying. You should also maintain the home care routine that our dentists will discuss with you during the visit.
