ROOT CANAL THERAPY FOR TOOTH PAIN WITH YOUR WEST CHESTER ENDODONTIST
Are you suffering from tooth pain, or a toothache that just doesn’t seem to go away? If this is the case, there is a chance that your tooth may be deeply infected and could require a root canal in order to save it. Root canals have truly changed restorative dentistry, and continue to help patients across the globe. Not too long ago, a severely infected tooth very rarely could be saved, and usually required a tooth extraction - thanks to root canals this usually is no longer the case.
If you are experiencing any of the following (particularly, if you are experiencing multiple of the following) a root canal from an endodontist might be a treatment option that can help:
Tooth Pain | Although tooth pain on its own isn’t necessarily an indication of a deep tooth infection, if it is coupled with other symptoms listed here, there is a chance your tooth pain is symptomatic of something deeper. In many cases, a root canal from our West Chester endodontist can help alleviate tooth pain, and get your mouth back to being healthy.
Chronic/Persistent Toothaches | If you have a toothache that just doesn’t go away, and continues to plague you night and day there is a good chance your tooth has an infection that goes deep. Root canals can be used to treat this symptom, and help you improve your oral health.
Abscesses | Abscesses are one of the most common signs of a tooth infection that has gone just a little too far. An abscess (which often feels like a bump on the gums near the effected tooth) can be treated in most cases with root canal therapy.
At our Cincinnati practice in West Chester, we have an in-house endodontist who can professionally perform root canals, and other related endodontic procedures that most dentist office would have to refer out. During a root canal our endodontist will carefully remove decayed and infected pulp from your tooth. Then the endodontist will gently clean out the tooth and seal it to help prevent further decay in the future. In many situations, a porcelain crown will be added to the tooth to help provide extra protection for the years to come.
