Each tooth in the human mouth comprising a long and thin space (the pulp) extending downwardly into the tooth root. The pulp contains nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue and can be damaged by caries or trauma. When the pulp is infected or injured, the result is often unbearable dental pain and, over time, the death of the tooth.
How do I know if I have an infected tooth?
Patients with dental infection will experience a number of unpleasant symptoms, which include but are not limited to:
Toothaches not subside after 24 hours
Tooth sensitivity to cold or hot food or drink
Discomfort in chewing or biting
Swelling around the tooth
Endodontic treatment will not only relieve the unpleasant symptoms, but will protect the maintenance of your teeth, and then restored with a crown.
The therapy includes the removal of the pulp content. Once the pulp has been removed and the root canal is cleaned and sealed with a material to prevent further contamination.
To ensure the health and maintenance of your smile, we can perform a safe and convenient endodontic treatment in our dental office by a specialist endontologist dentist.
