Want To Stop Tooth Pain? You May Need Root Canal Therapy

Tooth pain that continues to bother you, or grows worse in time rather than better, can be the result of an infection that needs to be treated. If you let an infection continue to spread, it can affect the health of your tooth so much that you are eventually left with no other option than to have it extracted! Fortunately, there is time to treat an infected tooth before this becomes necessary. Sunny Smiles can perform root canal therapy in order to remove bacteria and damaged or infected tissues that are in your tooth. After this is done, we can restore the tooth with a custom dental crown to both protect it and ensure you have no troubles biting and chewing after your procedure.

Is Your Tooth Aching Because Of An Infection?

A short period of tooth pain can occur after a tooth exposed to hot or cold temperatures. Discomfort can also be an issue if you have a sinus infection. However, when that discomfort persists for an extended period of time, you should be concerned about your oral health. A recurring or severe pain can be linked to an infection. If an infection is not treated, bacteria will continue to spread and destroy the tissues within your tooth, which eventually makes tooth extraction necessary to stop bacteria from causing more problems for your well-being.

How Root Canal Therapy Solves Oral Health Problems

Root canal therapy is a procedure performed when problems infiltrate form or move within your tooth structure. During your treatment, your dentist will carefully access your pulp and remove the damaged and decayed tissues within before sealing the pulp to keep it safe. Root canal therapy can become necessary when a cavity is not caught and treated with a dental filling in time, or when a physical injury causes internal trauma.

Restoring Your Tooth After Root Canal Therapy

You will need more than a dental filling to protect your tooth after you undergo root canal therapy. To make sure the tooth remains safe, your dentist will put a custom dental crown in place to keep it safe. If you are worried that your dental restoration will alter your smile in a way that you do not like, you can be relieved to hear that custom restorations that imitate your healthy enamel are available.
