General Dental Care
Are you experiencing throbbing pain and swelling at the base of your tooth? You may have an infection that needs a root canal treatment. Our team at Blossom Smiles Dental will help you understand what’s involved and ease your pain with the proper dental treatment to protect your tooth.
What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a process that aims to save a tooth that has become severely infected, instead of having to remove it. The treatment involves removing the infected pulp from inside the crown and roots of the tooth. Once cleaned out, the canal is then disinfected and sealed with natural material. A permanent filling or a crown may be used to strengthen and support the tooth and to properly restore it.
When Do You Need One?
If your dental pulp and the roots inside the canal become infected, it can spread into the tissues of your jawbone and form an abscess. When this occurs, swelling and pain will send out warning signs that something is wrong. If left unaddressed, the nerve of the tooth will eventually die and a root canal will be needed to save the tooth and prevent further infection.
Safe and Effective Care
Our root canal treatments are both safe and effective. Our dental office is fully equipped with all the latest dental equipment and technologies. We take proper care to ensure that you’re comfortable throughout and that all the procedures are carefully followed to prevent any further complications.
Our dentists will also ensure that you receive all of the instructions necessary for post-treatment care. During your recovery, you may experience some pressure and throbbing sensations while the tooth heals. We will prescribe medication, if necessary, to help reduce any discomfort following the procedure. Our team will also be available to answer any of your questions or to provide you with the next steps if you experience any complications.
Re-Treatment Care Services
If you’ve had a root canal procedure at another clinic that has resulted in a relapse of pain or another abscess, we can correct it with a root canal re-treatment procedure. This will ensure that the canals are properly cleaned out and filled for long-lasting care.
If you are experiencing tooth pain, don’t wait, contact us today to set up an appointment. If an abscess has formed and a root canal is required, our team will clean and protect your tooth and then restore it with a crown. Contact us today to learn more.
