Root Canal Therapy
Have you ever had questions about root canal therapy?
Perhaps we can help you understand exactly what happens and why this treatment is sometimes necessary.
When the pulp of a tooth becomes inflamed or infected, it can be very uncomfortable. A root canal treatment allows you to keep your natural tooth by removing the affected tissue, cleaning and sealing the tooth, and then restoring it with one of the many natural-looking composites or, in some cases, by placing a crown over the structure.
Patients often ask us if a root canal procedure will be painful and we assure them that it is an everyday service that we provide in comfort. We offer root canal therapy in one visit and the results will have you back to your usual smiling self in short order. Depending on the location of the treated tooth, you may want to consider aesthetic enhancement at a later date since a non-vital tooth can darken over time. We provide these services, as well, to rejuvenate your smile.
Often patients do not realize the significance of losing natural teeth and the impact this can have on your health and function. Missing teeth will affect the alignment of remaining teeth, will result in loss of support to the facial and cranial bones and can impact the proper function of the jaws in chewing and speaking. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg in the domino effect of tooth loss. Preserving your own dentition is one of the best decisions you can make for your oral health.
If you have dental concerns related to oral discomfort or any other procedure, we can help at Exploits Valley Dental Office, located in Grand Falls-Windsor. Your dental health and comfort is our priority!
