Root Canal Treatment/Endodontic Therapy, Overland, MO
Plaza Dental Center provides comfortable root canal therapy in Overland
The term “root canal” is scary to many, but is a routine procedure that can effectively save a damaged tooth if implemented correctly. If you have a severely cracked, injured, or decay-ridden tooth that is inflamed, you more than likely will need to have a root canal performed. Root canals typically take one to two in-office sessions, but post-procedure, with excellent hygiene, many people don’t require additional root canal therapy.
If you have a damaged or painful tooth, and would like to find out if you’re a good candidate for root canal therapy in Overland, MO, call or contact our team at 314-361-1818 to schedule an appointment.
Do I Need a Root Canal? | Overland Endodontics
Toothaches can be caused by many things and don’t always indicate that you need to get root canal treatment. But, some signs that can indicate that you need a root canal are:
- Sudden, extreme sensitivity to hot or cold
- An ongoing toothache that is triggered long after hot or cold temperatures have been removed
- A discolored, gray or brownish tooth, which indicates inflamed pulp/ruptured blood vessels
- An acute bump, similar to a pimple, on the gum line, near the affected area
- Extreme gum tenderness or swelling
Root Canal Therapy, Overland
Root canal therapy is straight-forward and similar to getting a tooth filling. During your visit, the dentist will numb you with an anesthetic to make sure that you’re comfortable during the procedure. Then, using special tools, the dentist will open up the top of the injured tooth, take out all of the damaged soft tissue, and clean 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.
