Root canal treatment is needed when the soft tissue inside the tooth, known as the pulp, becomes infected. This treatment is provided to remove the infected material and save the tooth’s structure. The pulp contains blood tissue, nerves and connective tissue. This area is extremely vulnerable, and when it is infected, it can result in intense pain and tooth loss. Designer Family Dental wants to help you restore your smile with the use of root canal treatment.
There are many signs and symptoms that might indicate that you are in need of a root canal treatment. These include:
During a root canal procedure, the dentist uses specialized tools to reach into the canals and the root of the tooth in order to clean it thoroughly and remove the infected material. The root canals are flushed with antimicrobial liquid, and the tooth is sealed. For protection, a crown is placed over the tooth.
Root canal treatment can help relieve the pain that is associated with the infection. Treatment can also help a patient chew and speak with ease. With the proper care, the tooth will last a lifetime.
