What Is Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal treatments are a type of endodontic therapy. Root canals are utilized when injury or decay reaches deep into the pulp or nerve tissue of the tooth that lies past the outer enamel. If left untreated, the infection or disease causes the tooth to die, thus prompting the need for an extraction. Symptoms of nerve necrosis or abscess that could indicate a need for root canal therapy include swelling, sensitivity to hot and cold, throbbing, and severe pain. A root canal can save the tooth and allow for proper healing and further strengthening of the tooth.
Dr. Zubkov works to detect when root canal therapy is needed before the infection can spread through the bloodstream into the rest of the body! To restore the health of the tooth and avoid extraction, we will first remove the infected and injured nerve tissue tissues from inside the tooth. The tooth is then cleaned and filled with a medicated material. This is typically completed in just one or two visits!
After the infection has been treated, the tooth is topped off with a luminous, natural-looking dental crown. Zubkov Dental uses CEREC® technology to provide patients with same-day dental crowns! These ultra-efficient, custom-made dental restorations are made right here in the office on the very same day as your root canal. No waiting, temporary crowns, or follow-up appointments necessary!
Do I Need A Root Canal?
If you are experiencing the following symptoms, Dr. Zubkov will use specialized diagnostic tools to determine if root canal therapy is right for you:
- Tender, swollen gums
- Severe tooth pain
- Tooth sensitivity
- Gum abscess
- Sharp pain when biting down or chewing
These signs can indicate that decay has reached the pulp of your tooth, resulting in infection or an abscess inside the tooth or at the root.
