If you have a tooth infection, you need to seek treatment soon. Delaying treatment means the tooth continues to decay, pain and sensitivity become the order of the day, and eventually, the tooth becomes loose and falls out! Luckily, in Charlottesville, Virginia, root canal therapy from Bearley Dental can intervene by removing the diseased tooth tissue to save your tooth and relieve oral pain.
Not sure you have a tooth infection? Here are the telltale signs that you need to visit Dr. Daniel Bearley to treat your tooth infection with root canal therapy:
It’s unwise to “wait out” a tooth infection. Unlike flu or a common cold, your body won’t fight off a tooth infection naturally. The longer you delay treatment and the more the infection spreads, the sooner you will be without a tooth.
Before embarking on root canal treatment, our dental team will explain everything you need to know for anxiety-free treatment. Once you are ready for treatment, we numb your gums and access the pulp chamber by making a hole on top of the diseased tooth. Next, we remove the unhealthy tissue and clean your tooth thoroughly to eradicate the infection. Finally, we seal off the root canals with gutta-percha and crown your tooth for stability and a better appearance.
Is root canal treatment the only option? The other alternative to a root canal is removal. And since the gap left by the missing tooth needs replacement, the procedures involved are expensive, time-consuming, and don’t exactly feel like your natural tooth. Why go this route when you can save your tooth with a root canal, which is simple, straightforward, and typically successful?
If you suspect you have a tooth infection, don’t ignore treatment. Instead, if you are in Charlottesville, Virginia, or its environs, please dial (434) 443-8034 to book an appointment with Bearley Dental for gentle root canal services.
