Root Canals And Dental Health

If you have a problem with your dental health, timely treatment is important. The longer you wait to deal with this issue, the more likely it is to cause complications, including complications with an infection. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we can provide you with root canal therapy to address an infection that has developed. Through this service, a potentially serious problem with a cavity or injury can be resolved before there are any further issues. We can provide this care as well as treatment with a dental crown to offer protection after your procedure, which will preserve your smile and keep your tooth safe.

A Root Canal Can Address A Serious Problem With Your Oral Health

You should be concerned about the state of your oral health when you have a persistent or severe toothache. Problems with an infection can become difficult to ignore, but if treatment is delayed, you run the risk for more complications, including tooth loss! After an evaluation to determine what condition your tooth is in, we can let you know if you need to undergo a root canal. Once we confirm that this is the case, we can proceed with restorative care to stop its health from worsening.

Treating A Severe Cavity Or Tooth Injury

A root canal procedure removes bacteria and unhealthy tissues contained in your pulp, the central chamber of your tooth. By taking care of this space, we can keep bacteria from spreading any further, which means we can stop complications that lead to tooth loss and more issues with an infection. The pulp is carefully accessed in order to provide the appropriate treatment. After it is tended to, it can be sealed to keep it safe, and we can proceed with plans to provide protection for the tooth with a custom dental crown.

How A Tooth Is Restored After Treatment

To address the effects of both your infection and treatment, we can provide a dental crown to keep a tooth safe. With the crown in place, you will be able to rely on its support whenever you bite and chew food. You will also be able to count on it to preserve your smile, as the material used to make your restorations can imitate healthy enamel. Our practice relies on CEREC technology to take care of crown production, which gives us the means to place them in just one appointment!
