Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment - The Dental Place

Do you have tooth aches, throbbing pains, tenderness when biting, sensitivity to hot and cold foods, or a large hole that required an extensive filling? Root canal may be the answer

Root Canal to Save a Tooth

Looking to save your teeth and keep them for life?

Reduce pain and discomfort.

You might be experiencing tooth aches, throbbing pains, tenderness when biting, sensitivity to hot and cold foods, or you may have had a large hole that required an extensive filling. These can all be indicators that you may need a root canal.

Years ago such teeth were doomed for extraction. Today, you can save your teeth, rather than lose them, by root canal therapy. Of course, your dentist will advise you of the best option for you. But, you need to be aware that tooth extraction can cause advanced shrinkage of gums, changes to your facial structures and cause your remaining teeth to shift – creating even more problems for you.

Root canal treatment consists of removal of the infected/inflamed nerve tissue within a tooth and involves placement of antimicrobial and sedative medications within the tooth. An effective root canal treatment prevents future dental infections and reduces the symptoms of pain.

For added protection, once a Root Canal is completed, a crown may be needed to protect the treated tooth structurally.

Crowns

When teeth crack or break they severely compromise the appearance and health of your teeth. A large filling, extensive decay, or a previous root canal, are some of the reasons why teeth fracture and break.

A crown is like a protective cap that is finely crafted and shaped to fit over your existing teeth. Crowns are used to strengthen and restore teeth so that you can protect your teeth and keep them for longer.
