When a tooth infection disturbs the soft tissue of a tooth, a root canal is necessary. Dr. Moore provides precise root canal procedures to patients who want to avoid a toothache and tooth loss.
Toothache Relief With Root Canal Treatment
During your procedure, we will numb the infected tooth so you do not experience any discomfort. We will clean the area thoroughly and then seal it. We also offer sedation dentistry options for patients who are nervous about their root canal procedure.
Some Causes of Toothache
Causes of tooth infection include:
- Deep cavities.
- Repeat dental procedures.
- Trauma to the tooth.
- A cracked or broken tooth.
It is best to seek treatment before you develop an abscessed tooth. Endodontics, or the specialty of dentistry related to the inner tooth, can help you overcome a tooth infection without tooth extraction.
Root Canal Indications
If you need root canal therapy, you may or may not experience a toothache, but some of the common symptoms of tooth infection include:
- A severe toothache.
- Pain upon chewing or application of pressure.
- Increased sensitivity or pain in response to extreme temperature.
- Darkening of the tooth.
- Swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums.
If you experience any of these symptoms, contact your dental professional.
Benefits of Root Canal Treatment
When a tooth is cracked or decayed, bacteria can enter the pulp and develop into a tooth infection. It is critical to undergo root canal therapy before further toothaches and swelling occur, or else the tooth may require extraction. Root canal treatment is the best way to save your tooth and your healthy natural smile!
