Stop Suffering with Tooth Pain
Living with persistent tooth pain can take its toll on your health and well-being. If you have excessive toothaches in one area of the mouth, it could be sign of an infection that goes deep within the tooth. Dr. Michael Rose may need to perform a root canal, which aims to save infected teeth and prevent oral damage. Despite its name, the root canal is a relatively painless procedure and is performed under local anesthesia fairly quickly.
Protect Your Natural Teeth with a Root Canal
The root canal is one procedure that helps us save a compromised tooth so we don’t have to extract it. It’s a simple in-office procedure that eliminates tooth pain immediately. Once the procedure is complete, you can look forward to eating your favorite foods and going through your busy day without tooth pain.
Do I Really Need a Root Canal?
If you experience throbbing pain or notice inflammation around one tooth, it could be a sign that the pulp inside the tooth has become infected. Once this happens, we need to clear the infection immediately or it will spread to the rest of the tooth and other teeth fairly quickly. This type of infection can cause irreversible damage which is why a root canal is your first line of defense for preserving your smile. Timely root canal treatment could save your tooth and avoid complications with your jaw.
Undergoing a Root Canal
Dr. Rose has more than 40 years of experience performing root canal procedures and other tooth preservation techniques. We perform this procedure under local anesthetic so you shouldn’t feel any discomfort or pain during or after treatment. The healing process is relatively short and Dr. Rose may recommend a dental crown restoration if we need to strengthen a cracked or fractured tooth.
