Root canal therapy is an endodontic treatment used to restore your oral health if a tooth is severely infected or damaged. You may suffer from tooth infection if you notice the following symptoms:
- A persistent or recurring pimple on the nearby gums
- Extreme tooth sensitivity
- Intense tooth pain, especially when biting and chewing
- Swelling or tenderness in the nearby gums
- A darkening or discoloration of the tooth
In the past, infected teeth often required extraction (removal). Thanks to modern advances in dental techniques and technology, we can now save infected and injured teeth through root canal therapy. Root canal therapy involves removing the infected dental pulp and tooth nerve. Your gentle dentist will then fill in the tooth and seal it. A dental crown may be needed to protect the tooth and restore its appearance and structure. Root canal therapy in Ocoee, Florida usually requires only two visits to Classic Smiles.
