When your tooth is fractured due to severe decay or injury, the internal nerve is exposed to bacteria, which promptly leads to an infection. This, in turn, may cause an extremely painful condition known as an abscess.
Your front teeth are most at risk of traumatic injury, particularly if you actively participate in contact sports without the protection of a dentist-recommended mouth guard. Your back teeth, on the other hand, are most susceptible to decay due to their being more difficult to clean. In both cases, the ideal solution for not only relieving your pain but also preventing a tooth extraction is to undergo a root canal treatment.
What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is an extensive procedure, where the bacteria is completely eliminated and removed along with the affected tooth’s nerve to prevent further complications. The tooth’s empty shell is then filled in with synthetic materials to serve as internal support. The final step is the placement of a dental crown, which restores your tooth’s natural appearance and function. Contrary to popular belief, you will experience little to no discomfort due to our highly sophisticated tools and equipment utilized by a skilled team of dentists.
At Cityview Smiles Dental, your comfort is our top priority throughout the entire treatment process, and we believe that a major part of achieving comfort is patient education. As such, we will explain the procedure to you in detail, allowing you to make a well-informed decision about your treatment plan.
