An endodontic treatment, or root canal, is a dental procedure that is used to treat tooth damage that is the result of bacterial infection. A root canal can save a tooth that would otherwise have to be removed completely. While a number of dental facilities will recommend the extraction of a damaged tooth, we have an in-depth understanding of the bacteria that causes tooth decay and choose, whenever possible, to undertake endodontic procedures to save a patient’s tooth.
If you are having any of the following symptoms, please contact us for an oral examination:
- Extreme pain when chewing or due to the application of pressure to the tooth
- Abnormal tooth sensitivity to either hot or cold substances
- Inflammation around the sensitive tooth
- An abscess
- Discoloration of the tooth
The doctors at Cobble Creek Dental use the latest technology and methods in performing endodontic procedures to guarantee your comfort and safety, as well as faster healing. When necessary, we use professionally administered general anesthesia to help you to be pain-free throughout the procedure. Before performing a root canal, our surgeon will prepare you and provide you with information on your patient responsibilities prior to surgery. After we have completed the endodontic procedure, we will provide you with straightforward information on how best to care for your tooth. If properly cared for, a saved tooth can last a lifetime without any need for further special treatment or extraction.
At Cobble Creek Dental, we will do everything we can to help you with your oral care. Set your appointment for a consultation today!
