When the pulp and nerve of your tooth are removed, and the canals of the tooth are cleaned and disinfected, you are having root canal therapy. As performed here at Crown Dental Group, this treatment is associated with a high degree of comfort. Most of our patients tell us that they experienced either very little or no pain at all. And since it is usually the only chance to save your tooth when the pulp becomes infected, it’s good to know that there is a 90% chance of success.
Infected tissue is the result of a breach in the protective layers of your teeth. Your enamel and dentin for an impenetrable barrier when they are intact. It is a cavity, chip, crack, or fracture that opens up your tooth to exposure. And even when a cavity has been filled, if that filling eventually comes loose or falls out, you are left with the same danger. You’ll be alerted to the need for our Chula Vista root canal by pain, usually most noticeable when you chew food or apply pressure to the tooth. Other possible symptoms are sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks, swelling, tooth discoloration, and gum tenderness. Only with an examination and x-rays can it be determined for sure if our Chula Vista root canal is the most appropriate form of treatment. It’s a non-surgical procedure, so there is no cutting, no stitches, and no bandages. You’ll be sufficiently numbed prior to the start of it by having local anesthesia administered. It may take more than one session to complete, especially if there are multiple canals. A dental crown will later be cemented to the tooth to restore full size and appearance.
