You Can Count On A Root Canal To Fix An Infected Tooth

You should obviously do what you can to avoid developing an infected tooth. Effective daily dental care that lowers your risk for cavities can certainly help with this. Unfortunately, many people who believe they do a good job preventing smile problems will develop tooth decay, and some of those individuals will go without treatment until bacteria reaches the tooth’s pulp. If this happens, a root canal treatment will be required. Your Rochester, MN dentist can welcome you for care in a welcoming, modern environment. You can count on restorative care that prioritizes your comfort, and fully addresses the needs of a vulnerable tooth.

How Can You Be Sure You Need A Root Canal Treatment?

Your dentist can determine whether you need a root canal for a problem by closely examining your tooth. Of course, you can become aware of a potential problem because a tooth infection can cause pain, and dental sensitivity. It should be noted that an infection is something that can occur after a dental injury – if you feel lingering discomfort after hurting your tooth, a crack may have formed, and allowed bacteria to infiltrate your pulp.

What Does A Root Canal Involve?

A root canal treatment is a process that will see your dentist access your tooth’s interior, remove infected tissues, and seal up your pulp before restoring your tooth. Because root canals have a less than stellar reputation among people, you may be alarmed at the news you require this procedure. What you should know is that the modern treatment experience your dentist provides can make a root canal more comfortable, so you have less to worry about. However, you should certainly worry about a tooth infection – if you go without treatment, the harm done by bacteria can eventually cost you your tooth!

What To Expect After You Undergo A Root Canal Treatment

After performing your root canal treatment, your dentist will provide you with a lifelike dental crown as a restoration. The crown does more than just protect your tooth from further damage. You can rely on it to restore your appearance, as it can closely mimic the tooth it protects. You can also count on your crown to withstand biting and chewing pressures, meaning it offers functional benefits. Your crown can be ready in as little as one appointment, thanks to the modern technology in your dentist’s office.
