Root Canal Therapy in Spring Valley
Don’t Suffer the Pain of Damaged or Infected Nerves—Call Us!
Nerves in the teeth, just like those anywhere else in the body, can become diseased or damaged. When this happens, a person commonly experiences a great deal of pain. To treat this problem, Dental Health 360° can perform root canal therapy in Spring Valley to alleviate the pain and protect the nerve from further damage. Root canals have a reputation for being painful, but in truth, it’s usually the damaged or infected nerve causing the pain, not the procedure to fix it! With our focus on exceptional patient care, comfort, and convenience, we can have you feeling better in no time.
When Would You Need a Root Canal?
Infections can develop when bacteria enter into the pulp tissue through a deep crack, cavity, or other trauma to the tooth. This is the most common reason for nerve damage requiring a root canal.
Call us immediately if you notice any of the following symptoms:
- A severe and persistent toothache
- Pain caused by chewing or applying pressure
- Noticeable swelling of the area
- Dark discoloration
- Tenderness or pain in nearby gum tissue
- Increased sensitivity to temperature
These symptoms may indicate infection or nerve damage. We can get you in for an exam and make recommendations for treatment, which may include root canal therapy.
What to Expect with Root Canal Therapy
Most people think of root canals as something to dread. While the circumstances around the treatment are unfortunate, the procedure itself is less invasive and more efficient than in the past. At Dental Health 360°, our team uses the most up-to-date technology and methods to perform root canal therapy in Spring Valley, often completing a patient’s treatment in a single visit.
When you come in for a root canal, this is what you can expect:
- First, we will numb the area using a local anesthetic.
- We’ll remove any infected, injured, or decayed tissue.
- Next we will clean the tooth’s interior and seal it.
- Finally, we will fill the tooth with a dental composite to strengthen and protect it.
You will need to return for a follow-up appointment so we can make sure there aren’t any additional issues and no further restoration is needed. With continued good oral hygiene, you should be able to move on without any further complications. Our team is committed to providing you with the best experience possible.
