Root Canal Therapy
Do you experience constant tooth pain that won’t subside? You may be suffering from an infected or decayed tooth. Your dentist may want to perform a root canal therapy on your tooth. At Solara Dental Care we have highly trained and experienced dentists who provide comfortable root canal treatments.
Root Canal Treatment
When the soft tissue inside your root canal becomes infected, you may need treatment. This area is known as the pulp. Deep decays or cracks are often the cause of this problem. If left untreated, it can lead to painful abscesses. Common symptoms of an infected pulp are pain, tooth discoloration, sensitivity to heat or cold or tenderness to your bone and gum. If you are experiencing any of these issues, contact your dentist as soon as possible. Ignoring the pain will not make it go away.
Root Canal Therapy Process
Your dentist will most likely need to take x-rays of your mouth to properly detect the issue and begin with a treatment plan. Your dentist will then make an opening in your tooth’s crown to properly clean out your pulp. After that you will get a new crown or another method of restoration for your tooth. This will help with further protection of your tooth.
