Root canal therapy at Enamel Dentistry is performed under local anesthesia to ensure that you feel absolutely no discomfort. You can even opt to be sedated during the procedure to avoid any nerves or stress. Patients often say that their root canal treatment was much less painful than living with the symptoms of an infected tooth, which include throbbing toothaches, sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, and pain when chewing. Root canal therapy is an efficient, effective way to save an infected tooth and get relief from pain and discomfort.
The Root Canal Process
When you come in for root canal therapy, your mouth will be cleaned and sanitized, and the infected tooth will be isolated using a dental dam. Our dentists will use specialized tools to gently remove the damaged or decayed material. Your tooth will then be disinfected and cleaned once more, and a temporary filling or crown will be placed over it to protect and strengthen its structure. You will receive a permanent dental crown at your follow-up appointment to ensure that your tooth does not become damaged or re-infected.
Anterior And Posterior Root Canals
Posterior teeth are your back teeth, and they are also called the molars and premolars. Anterior teeth are the front teeth, which are referred to as incisors and canines. At Enamel Dentistry, we offer both anterior and posterior root canals. No matter which tooth is infected, we can help restore your smile and get you out of pain. If you’re suffering from a painful toothache, call us today to schedule an appointment and get to the root cause of the issue.
