Preserve Your Natural Teeth with Root Canals
At Rosemont Dental Center, we believe in preserving the natural structure of your teeth whenever possible. Root canal treatment stands as a testament to this belief, offering a solution to save infected teeth.
What Is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a dental procedure aimed at treating infection within the pulp (core) of a tooth. It involves removing the infected tissue, cleaning the internal chambers, and sealing the tooth to prevent future infections.
How Is the Root Canal Procedure at Rosemont Dental Center?
The procedure begins with an assessment of the infected tooth, followed by local anesthesia to ensure comfort. After removing the infected pulp, the tooth's internal chambers are cleaned and sealed. In most cases, a dental crown is placed afterward to restore the tooth's strength and appearance.
Why Might I Need a Root Canal?
Root canals are typically recommended for teeth with deep cavities, severe cracks, or infections that have reached the pulp. Symptoms might include prolonged sensitivity, pain, swelling, or discoloration of the tooth.
