Comfort Dental Lounge provides complete root canal therapy. A root canal is a treatment of the pulp of the tooth that is inflamed, infected, or dead. Root canals will preserve your tooth and keep the structure from becoming damaged due to infection and bacteria. The infected tooth pulp is cleaned out the canals of the tooth are disinfected. The resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.
Symptoms that indicate the pulp has become infected may include sensitivity to hot/cold or sweets, pain, swelling, pain to biting or pressure, and a bad taste in the mouth. .
Root canal treatment involves one to three visits. The area around the tooth is numbed with a local anesthetic to start the procedure. The dentist will then drill down into the tooth to create an opening into the canal. Next, the infected tissue will be removed and the interior of the tooth will be cleaned and sealed. Finally, the tooth is filled with a dental composite. If your tooth had extensive decay, your dentist may suggest placing a crown to strengthen and protect the tooth from breakage.
At Comfort Dental Lounge, our dentists have excelled in performing the root canal procedure painlessly and with the utmost success.
