Root Canal Therapy
A severe toothache can be a sign of an infected tooth. If decay or infection reaches the inner sanctum of the tooth, it can cause pain and put the tooth in jeopardy of loss. Root canal therapy can remove disease or infection from inside the tooth, stopping the pain and preventing the need for extraction. Our team at Clover Smile Studio offers root canal therapy as one of our general dentistry services that can give you relief from tooth pain and save your infected tooth.
Root canal therapy is a type of endodontic dentistry that removes diseased portions of the tooth from inside the canals of the tooth. When a tooth is damaged or decay reaches the inside pulp of a tooth, the nerves inside the canal can be impacted. This can cause a toothache or sensitivity to temperature, and the discomfort will only get worse if left untreated. Root canal therapy is often the only option to save an infected tooth, removing the infection and restoring the tooth function.
Root Canals Offer Pain Relief for Infected Teeth!
Root canals are often equated with tooth pain, but it is not the procedure that is painful. The infection that affects the nerves inside the tooth is what causes pain. Our experienced dentists can perform a gentle procedure to treat the infection and remove the diseased pulp from inside the tooth canals. Once the tooth is disinfected, it is packed with a sterile material and the tooth is sealed. We add a dental crown to protect the weakened tooth, restoring it for lasting function. The procedure is no more uncomfortable than removing a cavity, but it can put an end to severe tooth pain and protect your smile.
If you have a tooth that is infected or are experiencing any type of tooth pain, contact Clover Smile Studio today. We offer emergency dental appointments for those in severe pain and can perform root canal therapy if necessary.
