Get Relief From A Crippling Toothache
When a nerve is irreversibly affected, it can cause severe pain and or infection. When this happens, the process of a root canal treatment involves the removal of one or multiple nerves within a tooth, then cleaning and shaping the empty space where the nerves used to be. This is followed by irrigation with a disinfecting solution and a special filler material. This process may sometimes require more than one visit. If you are in intense pain from a toothache, get relief, give us a call right away.
Root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp of the tooth inside the root canal becomes inflamed or infected. There are several reasons why you might need root canal treatment:
- Deep Cavity
- Deep Restoration
- Fractured Tooth
In addition, trauma to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.
Root canal treatment is virtually painless and often leaves you with little to no discomfort during recovery than if you have your natural tooth extracted. Mint Dental uses modern techniques to make the process as comfortable as possible.
When you undergo a root canal, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. Afterwards, the tooth is restored with a crown for protection and will continue to function like any other tooth.
