THE LATEST IN ROOT CANAL THERAPY
A root canal is a procedure that extracts decayed pulp from the central part of the tooth, reshapes the canal and replaces it with strengthened filler.
A common misconception is that a it’s a painful procedure. Actually, root canals are very similar to having a cavity filled, with minimal pain and discomfort.
Root canals are necessary for a number of reasons:
- Inflamed/infected tooth pulp
- Severe sensitivity to hot and cold elements
- Tooth decay
- Chipped or broken tooth
- Blow to the tooth
- Swelling or tenderness near the infected tooth
- Repeated dental procedures on a tooth
When left untreated, these problems can lead to severe tooth decay reaching the root of the tooth, causing extensive damage to the tooth structure. When the damage goes beyond what can be treated with a filling, we perform a root canal to preserve the tooth and retain its original integrity.
We work with each patient to discuss the details of your treatment and any possible alternatives. Our top priority is to provide you with the highest standard of care and make you as comfortable as possible. Contact us to learn more about what Gole Dental can do for you.
