Are You Living with Tooth Pain?
Tooth pain should never be ignored, especially if it persists or worsens over time. Toothaches can be the result of many things, but the most common reason is decay and infection in the tooth roots. Though many people are terrified of dental procedures like root canals, this treatment is actually aimed at eliminating your pain and saving your tooth! If your tooth pain is making it difficult to perform daily tasks like eating, we are here to listen to your concerns and to relieve your pain and anxiety with gentle, comfortable, and modern root canal treatment.
Consequences of Ignoring a Tooth Infection
An untreated tooth infection can only progress and become worse. Infection of a single tooth can actually begin to spread to other parts of the mouth and the rest of your body. By enduring tooth pain caused by an infection, you increase the risk of losing your tooth and bone structure and developing systemic health issues!
Signs you may need root canal treatment include:
• Heightened tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
• Tooth pain or sensitivity while biting or chewing
• Swelling in the face around the infected tooth
• Persistent toothache
• Swollen lymph nodes
• Recurring fever
How Is a Root Canal Procedure Performed?
The purpose of a root canal procedure is to save your tooth. With the help of modern dental technology, we can perform this procedure with little-to-no pain or discomfort for you. During the procedure, we gently remove the infection from the center of your tooth. Once the area is clean of infection and decay, we reshape the tooth cavity, fill the empty space, and cover the entire tooth with a crown to ensure bacteria does not reenter the area. Your treatment will be over sooner than you think, and you will be able to enjoy a healthy, pain-free smile once again!
Your Comfort Is Our Priority
Our doctors are aware that even the thought of getting a root canal can cause you anxiety and stress. We will discuss the entire treatment process with you and answer any questions you may have. For your increased comfort, we can provide additional sedation options so you can feel relaxed and calm during the procedure. You can arrive at your appointment knowing the care and treatment you will receive will be of the highest quality and from the most experienced doctors.
