If you feel tooth pain when chewing, sensitivity to hot or cold, discoloration, or swollen gums, you may have a root canal infection.
These infections occur when a tooth has extensive decay, multiple dental procedures, or has a crack, chip, or other trauma.
If you encounter any of these symptoms, the dentist at Silver Forest Dental can plan a course of treatment to get you back to full health and comfort.
No one wants to have a root canal, but root canal treatment can help keep your permanent tooth as opposed to having the tooth pulled. Silver Forest Dental strives to make our root canal treatments as pain-free as possible - our goal is to relieve your pain.
Patient Comfort is Our Number One Priority
Our dentist thoroughly explains each step of a root canal to you and will discuss your anesthetic options. We are committed to providing the best care possible before, during, and after your treatment.
Benefits of a Root Canal Treatment
There are many benefits to a root canal treatment, but saving the tooth is the most important of all.
Root canal treatment saves your natural smile and removes chewing pain and temperature sensitivity. It also limits the need for more dental work to the affected tooth. With proper care, most teeth that undergo a root canal treatment can last a lifetime.
Virtually Pain-Free Procedure. Due do our anesthetic options and gentle touch, root canal treatment is almost painless and often leaves you with less discomfort than having the tooth extracted. Patients needing a root canal typically undergo far less discomfort than tooth extraction patients.
Efficient and Cost-Effective.
Tooth extractions can take longer than a root canal due to the follow-up appointments needed for a denture, bridge, or implant. The cost may also be lower since most dental insurance plans cover root canal treatments.
Your dentist will place a crown or perform another restoration procedure to protect the tooth and restore it to full function after your root canal. Crowns look and function like your natural teeth. This can often be done at the same appointment for the root canal which means you only need to be numbed once.
After a root canal, you can maintain your natural smile
and have peace of mind knowing the tooth can last a lifetime.
