Endodontics, or root canal treatment is a dental therapy related to the nerves and roots of the teeth. Most people fear root canal treatment, but our experienced dentists use modern techniques to ensure a virtually pain-free experience for you, our valued patient.
An infection in the nerves and the tooth pulp can cause serious discomfort. It typically happens as a result of untreated cavities, chips, breaks or other injuries, and causes severe discomfort, including sharp or intense pain during biting. It may be worsened when you eat hot or cold food.
Root canal infection typically results in tenderness and swelling around the surrounding tissues. Other potential symptoms may include:
When you visit one of our highly experienced gentle dentists, they will create a treatment plan with you. Root canal treatments are typically performed using either sedation dentistry or sedation.
During the treatment, a hygienist will clean your mouth and eliminate any bacteria. Once the infected pulp is removed, your roots will be sterilized and a customized porcelain crown will be installed over your natural tooth to prevent further decay and to give you a winning smile while supporting the site and preventing further decay.
At Limelight Dental, we use only the highest quality materials to ensure beautiful, long-lasting results. Book your endodontics / root canal appointment with one of our dentists or dental hygienists today.
