Root Canal Treatment/Endodontic Therapy, Normandy, MO
Plaza Dental Center provides comfortable root canal therapy in Normandy
The term “root canal” is scary to many, but is a standard procedure that can effectively 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 will need to have a root canal performed. Root canals generally take one to two appointments, but afterwards, with excellent hygiene, most patients don’t need additional endodontic treatment.
If you have a broken or tender tooth, and want to find out if you’re a good candidate for root canal therapy in Normandy, MO, call or contact our team at 314-361-1818 to schedule an appointment.
Do I Need a Root Canal? | Normandy 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 inflamed pulp/ruptured blood vessels
- An acute bump, similar to a pimple, along the gums, near the affected area
- Extreme gum tenderness or swelling
Root Canal Therapy, Normandy
Root canal therapy is straight-forward and similar to getting a tooth filling. During your visit, the dentist will give you anesthesia to keep you comfortable during the procedure. Then, using special tools, the dentist will cut open the top of the injured tooth, remove the damaged soft tissue, and disinfect the area. After disinfecting the area, the tooth will be sealed to prevent further infection, and topped with a crown which protects the tooth below.
