Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic treatment, can help save a severely compromised tooth when there is irreversible damage to its nerve supply. The nerves of the teeth lie underneath the outermost layers of enamel and dentin, within the tooth’s dental pulp. When a tooth has extensive decay or has been damaged due to injury, the nerve becomes irritated and inflamed. Extensive decay or a dental injury may also allow bacteria to enter and infect the dental pulp. Signs of an infection may include oral pain, fever and swelling. If you have a toothache, be sure to contact our office immediately, we will diagnose the cause of your discomfort, then provide the most effective course of care. If needed, a Modesto root canal can resolve infection, alleviate your toothache and prevent subsequent damage to your oral health. While today’s root canal procedures are as comfortable as getting a routine filling, we offer patients who are anxious options in sedation dentistry. Following treatment, our dentist may recommend placing a crown, to strengthen and protect your tooth, and to restore its function and appearance. Root canal therapy has a high rate of success and a tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy can remain healthy and functional throughout your life.
With our state-of-the-art approach to care, your Modesto root canal is as stress-free and easy a routine dental filling. At Great Smiles Dental we will address any questions you may have, mitigating any worry or anxiety you may experience throughout treatment.
