Root Canal Treatment/Endodontic Therapy, Glendale, MO
Plaza Dental Center provides comfortable root canal therapy in Glendale
The term “root canal” is scary to many, but is 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 has become 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, many people don’t need further endodontic treatment.
If you have a broken or tender tooth, and want to see if you’re a good candidate for root canal therapy in Glendale, MO, call or contact Plaza Dental at 314-361-1818 to schedule an appointment.
Do I Need a Root Canal? | Glendale 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:
- Extreme sensitivity to hot or cold food or drink
- An ongoing toothache that is triggered long after hot or cold temperatures have been removed
- A Dark tooth, which indicates inflamed pulp/ruptured blood vessels
- A small bump, similar to a pimple, on the gum line, near the affected area
- Extreme gum tenderness or swelling
Root Canal Therapy, Glendale
The process of getting root canal therapy is straight-forward and similar to having a tooth filled. During your appointment, the dentist will numb you with an anesthetic to make sure that you’re comfortable during the treatment. Then, utilizing special tools, the dentist will cut open 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 future infection, often with a crown, which can effectively protect the tooth below.
