Everyone can have a day ruined by a persistent toothache, but if you are struggling to get any rest because of a painful or sensitive tooth, give us a call at (262) 662-1111 so we can conduct a full evaluation of your oral health. When a cavity or toothache injures the inner pulp of the tooth, root canal therapy may be necessary to properly treat the infection and restore the comfort and health of your smile. Virtue Dental emphasizes compassionate dentistry and use a cautious method of treating dental problems. You or a loved one will have a healthier and more attractive smile as a result of our mild and efficient root canal therapy.

A root canal procedure is what?

Root canal therapy may be required when the pulp, the soft inner part of the tooth, becomes infected. A weaker tooth, severe dental caries (cavities), repeated dental procedures, or a dental injury that allows infection to access the tooth’s inner layer can all contribute to this. To prevent infection, dental pain, or the loss of the affected tooth, it is strongly advised to seek the services of a dentist or endodontist when a root canal is necessary.

How to Spot a Root Canal in Its Early Stages

The best approach to prevent a root canal is to brush, floss, and visit your dentist every six months for a checkup. It is important that you make an appointment with your dentist as soon as you notice any changes in your oral health, such as a sensitive tooth that is affected by hot or cold meals or gums that hurt or bleed after brushing. No matter what life throws at you, Virtue Dental focuses on preventive and conservative dental care to keep your teeth healthy.

Your Appointment for Root Canal Treatment

Treatment of disease or damage to the tooth pulp is the focus of endodontic dentistry. To provide a pain-free process, Dr. Allie. Jones will lightly numb the tooth during your root canal appointment. After that, a tiny hole is drilled into the tooth’s outer layer in order to remove the unhealthy pulp and stop the pain. The next step is to clean the root canal and fill it with gutta-percha, a material that resembles rubber and supports the tooth’s natural structure. The tooth is then sealed off with a dental filling or crown.
