ROOT CANAL THERAPY IN CARY
PROTECT & REPAIR INFECTED TEETH
ROOT CANAL THERAPY
At Urban Smiles Dental, we offer gentle root canals to remove infection and decay from teeth before they become irreparably damaged. A tooth infection occurs when the nerve-filled pulp is exposed to oral bacteria. This can happen if your tooth is severely decayed or damaged by dental trauma. If these issues go untreated and a root canal is not performed to remove the infection, this may eventually result in tooth loss. If you suspect an infection, call us today to book a consultation with us.
MINIMIZE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT
Root canal therapy at Urban Smiles Dental is performed under local anesthesia to ensure that you feel absolutely no discomfort. Patients often say that their root canal treatment was much less painful than living with the symptoms of an infected tooth, which include throbbing toothache, sensitivity to hot and cold temperature, and pain when chewing. Root canal therapy is an efficient, effective way to save an infected tooth and get relief from pain and discomfort.
WHAT TO EXPECT
THE ROOT CANAL PROCESS
When you come in for root canal therapy, your mouth will be anesthetized, and the infected tooth will be isolated using a dental dam. Our dentists will use specialized tools to gently remove the damaged or decayed material. Your tooth will then be disinfected and cleaned once more, and a temporary filling or crown will be placed over it to protect and strengthen its structure. You will receive a permanent dental crown at your follow-up appointment to ensure that your tooth does not become damaged or re-infected.
