ENDODONTICS (ROOT CANAL THERAPY)
Inside each one of your teeth is a chamber filled with nerves and blood vessels called the pulp cavity. The pulp cavity receives the nerves and vessels from a passage in the tooth root called the root canal.
Proper care of your teeth and gums will help to keep the root canals in your mouth healthy and functioning optimally. However, poor oral hygiene or an injury that fractures a part of a tooth can result in an infection. The signs of a root canal infection include:
- Difficulty chewing hard foods
- Hypersensitivity to hot and cold liquids
Aside from extracting the affected tooth, the only way to treat the condition is through root canal therapy.
In this procedure, Dr. Wagner carefully removes all of the damaged tissue from inside the tooth and replaces it with a biocompatible material. Afterward, most patients are fitted with a crown on their treated tooth to restore its strength and appearance.
If you have an infected tooth, root canal therapy is essential to maintaining the overall health of your mouth. It will prevent the tooth from eventually falling out and requiring a fixed restoration, such as a bridge or partial denture, to replace it. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned above, please contact us to learn more or to schedule an appointment. The sooner you call, the better able we are to save your tooth and keep your smile looking its best.
