Root canal therapy is a specific treatment that is meant to treat an infected root canal. Root canal infections are often the result of advanced tooth decay. Tooth decay is most often the culprit behind the development of cavities, but if decay spreads to the center of the tooth, and the root pulp and the nerve ending may also become agitated and infected. This is often why root canal infections tend to be more painful than your run-of-the-mill cavity. When nerve endings are agitated or pinched, you will generally experience a sharp and shooting pain, which is what often results when a root canal becomes infected. In order to preserve your tooth, you will need to undergo root canal therapy. This procedure will involves the removal of all infected tissue including the infected root pulp and nerve ending. Here at Old Orchard Dental our dentist will first make sure that you are given the proper amount of anesthetic so that you can be completely comfortable throughout the duration of the procedure. Once the anesthetic has kicked in, our dentist will begin to remove the infected tissue. The root pulp and any decayed tooth mass will also be removed and cleared away. We offer complete Skokie dental care here at our offices so we will also be able to provide you with a dental crown in the event that your tooth needs to be restored in shape once the procedure is complete.
Once your root canal therapy has ended, you may need to visit for additional visits in order to make sure that the procedure was completely successful. If you believe that you may have infected root canal, then it is important that you get the Skokie dental care that you need to soon as possible so please call us here at Old Orchard Dental today.
