Root Canal for Those in Tampa, Spring Hill, Brandon, Seffner & Neighboring Cities
If you have a severely infected tooth, you may be a candidate for a root canal. Your endodontist will be able to determine if a root canal is right for you after a thorough oral exam.
This procedure is necessary if the pulp of your tooth is infected, but don’t fret. It sounds worse than it is. With advancements in the dental industry, a root canal is no more difficult than a standard filling, and you should experience little to no discomfort throughout your procedure. Your endodontist will simply remove the damaged area of the tooth, clean the surface and seal it to prevent further erosion.
Common reasons your tooth may require a root canal include:
- Deep cavities
- Cracked teeth
- Overtreatment on the affected tooth
Your endodontist will often require an x-ray to determine how severe your infection is. During your procedure, your endodontist will administer a local anesthetic to alleviate pain and keep you comfortable before performing the pulpectomy, which is simply the removal of the infected tooth pulp. Once the infection is fully removed and disinfected, your endodontist will fill and seal your tooth to prevent your infection from returning and save your natural tooth.
