When cavities progress for longer than they should, they can eventually develop into root canals. This happens when the cavity spreads deep down into the root of the tooth. If the problem progresses even farther, a crown may be needed to stabilize a weakened tooth.
Don't allow your mouth to end up in bad shape - make sure you're getting regular check-ups!
When a root canal is performed, we will clean out the infected tooth pulp and disinfect the canals of your tooth. Once any infection is resolved, the canal is filled in to prevent any further infection. If you're experiencing swelling, sensitivity to temperature, or pain, call us today.
Prevent problems such as this by brushing and flossing twice daily. Regular check-ups will detect any potential problems and catch them before they develop into root canals, saving you both discomfort and money. Give us a call today for a consultation.
Root canals are procedures that can be used to treat teeth that are decaying in your mouth and causing problems. Relieve your pain today when you give us a call.
