End Toothaches and Pains with Root Canal Treatment
Root Canals Can Eliminate Tooth Pain
Despite many popular opinions, the purpose of a root canal is not to cause pain but relieve tooth pain and infection. Root canals are typically used to treat teeth that have been severely damaged by decay and /or trauma, to where infection has spread inside of the tooth, damaging the sensitive pulp and nerves. After root canal treatment, you should feel reduced sensation of pain and should be able to use it as normal once again. A root canal is typically pain-free and when caught early enough, can save you from needing to have your tooth extracted.
Symptoms of Tooth Infection:
- Constant toothache and pain
- Tooth sensitivity to hot or cold drinks
- Pain when biting or chewing
- Swelling of the face or lymph nodes
- Pus or an abscess forming
Our Root Canal Process
When treating you for a tooth infection, we approach the root canal process in a gentle and minimally invasive manner. Dr. Francisco Marcano will create a small opening in your tooth to access the infected pulp inside. The infection will then be cleaned out of the tooth and the inside will be reshaped to preserve the structure of the tooth. A biocompatible material called gutta-percha will then be added to fill the interior of the tooth and seal the area. Finally, we will reshape your treated tooth and restore it with a lifelike dental crown, which will allow you to use it like normal—free of pain.
Enjoy Exceptional, Gentle Treatment
By quickly seeking treatment for your tooth, you can prevent further complications from developing, such as tooth loss or a spread of infection. Our root canal process is relatively painless thanks to the use of The Wand® anesthesia, which is a minimally invasive approach to applying local anesthetic to the treatment location. Dr. Marcano is experienced at performing all aspects of the root canal procedure thanks to his hundreds of hours of continuing education courses he participates in. And with his artistic eye when creating dental crowns, you can rest assured that your tooth restoration will look nearly flawless in your smile.
