A root canal procedure is only necessary to stop a cavity when that cavity has reached your pulp, or the inner chamber of a tooth. By performing a root canal, your Rochester, MN dentist puts a stop to a problem that can lead to persistent discomfort, and a potential spread of oral bacteria through the root of your tooth, where it can go on to cause more harm. Our practice can provide you with a welcoming space, and access to modern care when you need to undergo something like a root canal. With regular dental exams, you can also have tooth decay identified and treated before a root canal is required.
Providing Modern Care To Address Threats To Your Oral Health
Issues like dental sensitivity, pain, and a swelling of tissue around a problem tooth can all suggest that a root canal is needed. This procedure is used to remove an infection, and stop bacteria from continuing to spread. During your time in treatment, your care and comfort are a priority. It is important to remember that when you undergo a root canal, you can enjoy relief from active discomfort.
Using A Restoration To Protect Your Tooth After Restorative Work
Restorations are needed after any cavity treatment, as decay’s damage is not reversible through natural healing. While some cavities are addressed with dental fillings, a root canal treatment will require a dental crown. Our practice provides same-day crowns that look like your natural teeth, and offer long-term support that will help you bite and chew with confidence.
Bring Down Your Risk For Future Troubles By Undergoing Regular Dental Exams
At each dental exam you attend, you can receive a careful smile review. This review will ensure that any problems like tooth decay or gum disease are identified, and addressed, before there are complications. With routine care, you also receive preventive oral health support that can make it easier to avoid problems.
