Root Canal Therapy
When dealing with a single tooth that is experiencing a lot of pain or sensitivity, a root canal is often the answer. Thankfully, this procedure is nowhere near as scary as its reputation! In fact, thanks to modern dentistry, it feels a lot like getting a small filling. A dentist simply numbs the tooth, removes the infected tissue, sanitizes the tooth, and then they replace the tissue with a biocompatible material before rebuilding the tooth with a filling or dental crown. In the end, a patient should experience complete relief, and the tooth can be trusted to look and function normally for years to come.
While our primary goal is to help our patients preserve all of their teeth for a lifetime, in some cases, removing a tooth may be the best option, such as:
- A tooth is too damaged or decayed to be repaired
- Advanced periodontal disease has damaged the bone supporting a tooth
- A tooth has become impacted (stuck), painful, or infected (which is usually the case for wisdom teeth)
At Cambria Smiles, we’re able to handle a wide variety of extractions with both skill and care, ensuring that our patients remain comfortable the entire time. If needed, we can also provide a suitable replacement to close any gaps in the smile.
