Root Canal Treatment/Endodontic Therapy, Shrewsbury, MO
Plaza Dental Center provides comfortable root canal therapy in Shrewsbury
Root canals might seem scary, but are a routine procedure that can effectively save an injured tooth if done correctly. If you have a severely cracked, injured, or decay-ridden tooth that is inflamed, you more than likely need root canal treatment, also known as Endodontic therapy. Root canals typically take one to two in-office sessions, but afterwards, with good hygiene, many people don’t need additional root canal therapy.
If you have a damaged or tender tooth, and would like to find out if you’re a good candidate for root canal therapy in Shrewsbury, MO, call or contact Plaza Dental at 314-361-1818 to schedule an appointment.
Do I Need a Root Canal? | Shrewsbury 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 can indicate that you need a root canal are:
- Extreme sensitivity to hot or cold food or drink
- An ongoing toothache that is triggered long after hot or cold food and drink have been removed
- A discolored, gray or brownish tooth, which indicates deep tooth trauma
- An acute bump, not unlike the appearance of a pimple, along the gums, near the affected area
- Extreme gum tenderness or swelling
Root Canal Therapy, Shrewsbury
The process of getting root canal therapy is straight-forward and similar to having a tooth filled. During your visit, the dentist will give you anesthesia to keep you comfortable during the procedure. Then, using special tools, the dentist will open up the top of the infected tooth, remove the damaged soft tissue, and clean the area. After disinfecting the site, the tooth will be sealed to prevent future infection, and topped with a crown which protects the tooth below.
