Endodontic treatments, or root canals, are a dental procedure used to treat damaged teeth. This is damage to the pulp which is as a result of bacterial infection. Root canals can be readily used to save a tooth that would otherwise be removed completely. At Cobble Creek Dental, our doctors use the latest technology and methods in performing endodontic procedures to guarantee you faster healing and safety.
If you are having any of the following symptoms, feel free to contact us for an oral examination to help avert possible adverse damage:
- Extreme pain when chewing or due to application of pressure to the tooth.
- Abnormal tooth sensitivity to either cold or hot substances.
- Inflammation around the sensitive tooth.
- Discoloration of the tooth.
While a number of dental facilities will recommend the extraction of your tooth, we will first conduct a thorough exam on the level of infection and undertake an endodontic procedure to help save your tooth. This is because of our in-depth understanding of the bacteria that causes tooth decay and how best to get rid of it.
We make the procedure as friendly and comfortable as possible. When necessary, we use professionally administered anesthesia to help you get over any potential pain. Before performing root canals, our dentists will prepare you and provide you will all the required information for a more successful procedure.
