Root Canal Therapy Rescues Smiles
When severe decay, injury or other damage affects one of your teeth, we do everything possible to preserve the natural tooth — and root canal therapy is a choice in the most serious cases. It may be one of the most dreaded treatments in dentistry, but anyone who has had a root canal will tell you that the procedure itself is painless compared to the discomfort of an aching tooth. So the next time you are experiencing damage or decay, do not delay the treatment you need out of fear — schedule an appointment for root canal therapy as soon as possible.
Root Canal Therapy Process
To begin root canal therapy, Dr. Makadia will evaluate the damage to plan the best treatment possible. After a local anesthetic has been applied for your complete comfort, he will open the tooth and remove the decayed pulp and infection. Then, he will complete the procedure by sealing the tooth with a filling or topping it with a sturdy dental crown.
Maintaining Excellent Oral Hygiene After a Root Canal
Once your root canal therapy is complete, you will need to maintain excellent oral hygiene to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible. Brush for three minutes twice a day, floss daily, and visit the dentist as recommended to maintain oral health now and for years to come!
