Warning Signs of Dental Infection
There are many signs you may need a root canal. Many people experience a severe toothache or sensitivity to hot and cold when eating. Some will have swelling or tenderness in the jaw or a “pimple” on the gums. These symptoms may indicate you need a root canal.
Why do you need a root canal? There are several causes of needing root canal therapy, but the most common is untreated tooth decay, dental trauma, or a large filling that has been repetitively filled. The best thing to do is maintain routine dental visits with Bright 32 Family Dentistry for early detection of small tooth decay and to help prevent any future pain and discomfort.
Root Canal Treatment at Bright 32
You can be assured that root canal treatment is really no different from a traditional dental filling at Bright 32 Family Dentistry. A root canal is essentially a painless and simple procedure where the nerve of the tooth is removed and then the pulp chamber and canals are cleaned, disinfected, and sealed to prevent any bacterial contamination. We use the highest quality materials to ensure your root canal treatment will restore your dental health.
More than often, you will need a dental crown following your root canal to completely protect the tooth if it is weakened or compromised. A crown will provide your tooth the strength and esthetics needed to last many healthy years.
The root canal process is typically completed in a single office visit, but may require more than one if the infection is severe. If you are uncomfortable with the idea of a root canal, Dr. Brenner would be happy to discuss your sedation options. Call our office today to schedule your root canal evaluation with Dr. Brenner and learn how he can ease your pain!
