You may not be excited exactly about the idea of having root canal therapy, but it’s a far better option than losing your tooth to an extraction. And because we make use of cutting-edge equipment and modern techniques here at Southington Dentistry, there is absolutely no reason for you to feel anxious or fearful. The majority of our patients tell us that they had very little to no discomfort at all as part of the procedure.
Where pain is very real is from the infection your tooth has, which is the very reason why you need our Plantsville root canal. A simple toothache can turn into an excruciating experience when the tissue inside your tooth becomes infected as a result of bacteria getting inside. This happens typically due to a large cavity, a filling that has come loose or fallen out entirely, or a chipped or cracked tooth. Essentially, the protective barriers of your tooth have become compromised. If after an examination and x-rays, our dentist determines that you need our Plantsville root canal, you will first be numbed with local anesthesia. Once that takes hold, the procedure begins. Some people aren’t aware, but it’s not surgery. It’s a therapy that involves removing the pulp and nerve inside your tooth, where the infection is. That is followed by the cleaning and disinfecting of the canals of the tooth, and then sealing the canals. There is a 90% rate of success, meaning you can be confident in a good outcome. A custom fitted crown will be cemented to your tooth after it heals, restoring it to its normal appearance and function. Your pain will be gone, and your tooth will remain healthy and viable.
Now that you know the benefits of our Plantsville root canal, be sure to call our office immediately when you have tooth pain of any kind. We will make sure you are seen in a timely manner.
