If a tooth becomes severely decayed or damaged, most dentists will simply remove it. At Sommers Family Dental, however, we like to practice more conservative dentistry and work to preserve our patients’ natural smiles for as long as possible. With root canal therapy, we can fully repair even the most distressed teeth and stop the worst toothaches in their tracks at the same time. If one of your teeth just won’t stop hurting, give us a call today to start getting the relief you need.
The interior of a tooth contains canals that lead from the tooth pulp or nerve center and supply vital nutrients to the tooth. If the roots sustain damage, these canals can become infected. Tooth fractures, deep cavities, and dental trauma are frequent causes of internal tooth damage. Usually, the infection builds, producing pain and pressure. If you don’t seek treatment, you risk gum, bone, and tooth loss.
Your dentist will perform a root canal to stop the infection and protect the tooth. During the procedure, he will remove the diseased tissue and sanitize the area. The dentist will insert a biocompatible filler into the canals and seal off the tooth. To prevent future problems, we will place a custom crown over the tooth, restoring comfort and function.
With Sommers Family Dental, root canals don’t have to be scary. Trust our experienced experts to help salvage your damaged tooth and help you feel comfortable from beginning to end. Get the relief you need by contacting our team for an appointment.
