Root Canals: Treat severe tooth decay with one easy procedure!
Infected root canal can be due to severe tooth decay, repetitive dental procedures, a crack or chip in the tooth or even trauma to the face. In such cases, the pulp or the soft tissue found inside the tooth is inflamed, which could impede the tissue responsible for the tooth’s normal and healthy growth. The nerves of the tooth and pulp can develop infection and can become inflamed and irritated due to decay in the cavity of the tooth.
In some cases, they experience few to no symptoms at all. But for other individuals with inflamed pulp in their tooth, they suffer the following symptoms:
- Stinging pain and toothache when chewing or upon application of pressure on the affected area.
- Persistent pain and sensitivity to heat and cold food and beverages even after hot or cold intakes.
- Darkening and discoloration of the tooth and its surrounding area such as the gums.
- Inflammation and soreness in the affected gum area
- A persistent and regular pimple on the gums
In order to cure this condition, Conejo Dental executes top-of-the-line Endodontic treatment. This procedure involves the removal of the swollen pulp. The tooth’s interior is then cleaned and disinfected gently before it is sealed with a new crown and filling. The filling is made of a biocompatible material known as gutta-percha, and a special type of cement. After the treatment, we assure you that you can now fully enjoy eating and that your teeth are better protected from more serious dental hazards.
