A root canal is a fairly common dental treatment that often gets a bad reputation for being painful. At Bright Side Dental – Royal Oak we make root canals as painless as possible with the most advanced dental technology available and the best dentists in the entire area.
A root canal is required when the pulp inside a tooth becomes inflamed or infected. Some of the signs that you may need a root canal are severe toothaches, swelling of gums, discoloration of the tooth, or sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. If you have noticed any of these symptoms, you should definitely visit your Royal Oak dentist for a consultation. There, they will be able to determine if a root canal is the right treatment for your situation.
The root canal treatment is quite simple, and very safe. It begins with your dentist numbing your tooth and the surrounding area so that you won’t feel any pain during the procedure. An opening will then be made in the top of your tooth and your dentist will remove any inflamed or infected pulp using a tool called an endodontic file. The tooth is then filled back in with a material called gutta-percha that will support and protect the structure of your tooth. The final step is the placement of a dental crown.
With a focus on ensuring the procedure is as comfortable as possible, root canals at Bright Side Dental – Royal Oak help patients who were previously experiencing tooth pain. There are many signs a patient is in need of a root canal including sensitivity to very hot and cool foods, and general discomfort. Bright Side Dental – Royal Oak’s root canal services team also offers $100 off of your procedure. Call 248-629-1830, or contact us online, to schedule a dental checkup.
