Scheduling Root Canal Therapy To Address A Toothache

Your growing concern over a toothache has you thinking you might need to see your dentist. Is this really a problem that calls for restorative dental work, or can you simply wait for the pain to subside on its own? While brief periods of dental pain can sometimes be traced back to a sinus infection, you should be alarmed if you develop a persistent toothache. This can be a sign that the tooth has become infected. If it has, the problem will worsen until root canal therapy occurs. Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office is prepared to see you if you have a problem with a toothache. After checking the tooth, we can move forward with plans to fully care for the tooth!

You Should Be Concerned By A Toothache

A toothache is cause for alarm. Simply put, persistent pain or sensitivity can be a sign of an infection, something that will only worsen as time passes without treatment. Eventually, the bacteria that are attacking the living tissues in your tooth can exit through your roots and create new problems for you. The damage can become so severe that saving a tooth is no longer possible, which can make it necessary to have the tooth extracted and replaced. By acting on your concerns and seeing your dentist, you can have a problem stopped before the most severe consequences of an infection occur.

Scheduling Your Root Canal Therapy

Through root canal therapy, your dentist is able to deal with an infection that has formed within a tooth’s pulp. The procedure will see the interior of the tooth carefully accessed. When this is done, work will be performed to remove the infection that has formed so that you no longer experience discomfort. Once all bacteria and infected tissues have been removed, the pulp is sealed. This is done to stop a future infection from happening. At the end of this process, it will be necessary to protect the tooth with a custom restoration. You can be happy to hear that our practice is actually able to restore teeth with same-day crowns, so we can complete your care in less time!
