Root Canal Treatment/Endodontic Therapy, Glasgow Village, MO
Plaza Dental Center provides comfortable root canal therapy in Glasgow Village
Root canals might seem scary, but are a standard procedure that can, in most cases, save a damaged tooth if done correctly. If you have a severely cracked, injured, or decay-ridden tooth that is inflamed, you most likely need root canal treatment, also known as Endodontic therapy. Root canals generally take one to two appointments, but post-procedure, with good hygiene, most patients don’t need additional endodontic treatment.
If you have a damaged or tender tooth, and want to see if you’re a good candidate for root canal therapy in Glasgow Village, MO, call or contact Plaza Dental at 314-361-1818 to schedule an appointment.
Do I Need a Root Canal? | Glasgow Village Endodontics
Tooth pain can be caused by a variety of things and doesn’t necessarily mean that you need a root canal. But, there are certain symptoms that could point to you needing root canal treatment:
- Sudden, extreme sensitivity to hot or cold
- An ongoing toothache that is triggered long after hot or cold temperatures have been removed
- A Dark tooth, which indicates deep tooth trauma
- A small bump, not unlike the appearance of a pimple, on the gum line, near the affected area
- Extreme gum tenderness or swelling
Root Canal Therapy, Glasgow Village
The process of getting root canal therapy is straight-forward and similar to having a tooth filled. During your appointment, the dentist will give you anesthesia to keep you comfortable during the treatment. Then, utilizing special tools, the dentist will open up the top of the infected tooth, take out all of the infected soft tissue, and disinfect the area. After disinfecting the site, the tooth will be sealed to prevent further infection, often with a crown, which can effectively protect the tooth below.
