A root canal is a common and very safe dental procedure that is performed to remove inflamed or infected pulp in a tooth. Although it can be easily avoided by taking good care of your teeth every day, we understand that it can still happen to the best of us. That’s why Bright Side Dental – Farmington is here to help with our root canal services. Our Farmington office utilizes the most advanced dental technology available to make the procedure non-invasive and virtually painless.
A few of the symptoms that your tooth pulp is inflamed or infected include toothache, severe pain when chewing, prolonged tooth sensitivity to hot or cold, swelling or nearby gums. If you are experiencing these symptoms, you should immediately contact your Farmington dentist to see if a root canal procedure is what you require.
If you do end up needing a root canal, one of our dentists at Bright Side Dental will be able to take care of it right away. They will start by numbing your tooth and the surrounding area do that you won’t feel any pain. Next, they will make an opening in the top of your tooth and remove the inflamed or infected pulp using an endodontic file. They will then clean the remaining cavity and fill it back in with a material called gutta-percha. This material supports the structure of the tooth and helps to prevent any future infection. Finally, your dentist will place a cap, or dental crown, over top the repaired tooth. This crown will look and function just like a natural tooth.
If chewing hot or cold food causes your tooth discomfort, it may be time to schedule a root canal in Farmington. Call 248-919-2490 or contact us online, and ask how you can get $100 off of your procedure.
