HAVING A TOOTHACHE?

You may want to change your approach and call today to schedule a visit and get things checked out. Dental neglect can lead to much larger and much more expensive procedures. Sometimes you may just be experiencing dental sensitivity. Maybe it’s just a minor injury with a quick and easy remedy. And maybe it has the potential to be worse. It’s best to get ahead of the problem rather than risk your symptoms worsening without treatment.

WHAT IS A ROOT CANAL?

Sometimes diet and damage can lead to your tooth nerves and pulp becoming infected. This is fairly normal but the discomfort can make you feel like anything but your normal self.  A root canal is the common cure and can help you get on with your normal life.

A root canal involves removing the damaged or infected tooth pulp from the tooth root. When teeth reach maturity, they no longer need this material and it can be removed with no ill effects. When the tooth roots are clear of tooth nerve and pulp, a filler is placed and then the tooth surface is either sealed shut, or a dental crown is placed. In either instance your tooth will be healthy and strong and allow you to live, laugh and eat like normal.
