Contrary to popular belief, root canal therapy in Pembroke Pines is designed to get you out of discomfort, not cause it. In fact, this treatment is incredibly effective at not just relieving you of pain, but saving your natural tooth. In the past, your only option would have been to extract the tooth outright. Instead, we can make sure that your natural tooth stays intact and avoid the need for expensive tooth replacements later. If your tooth is experiencing severe discomfort, give our dental office a call today!
During your root canal therapy, you’ll be given local anesthetic to remove all discomfort during the procedure. Most patients note that it feels comparable to receiving a dental filling. You’ll also be given sedation if requested. During the procedure, we’ll create a small access hole in the top portion of your crown, then use it to reach decayed and damaged pulp inside your tooth. After removing decay as well as irrigating and shaping the canal, we’ll place filler material to replace the pulp and prevent future infections from developing. Finally, a permanent crown is placed on top to cover the access hole.
