Are you suffering from a painful toothache? If so, you might want to do something about it but dread the thought of seeking root canal treatment.
It’s extremely common for patients to fear root canals, as they have a reputation for being a uniquely unpleasant dental treatment. Thankfully, you have nothing to fear!
In reality, root canals are a largely painless and highly effective way of fixing a rotten tooth.
Our team at Midtown Dental specializes in root canal treatment, providing expert dental care to Denver residents. With us, your comfort comes first! We guarantee you’ll leave our office feeling confident and relieved that your pain is through.
What Are Root Canals?
Teeth consist of the tooth pulp. This pulp lies right beneath a tooth’s shiny white enamel, forming the core of the tooth with two small-sized canals. Unfortunately, this pulp can become infected due to damage, plaque buildup, old fillings, and decay.
That’s where root canals come in. Our dentists use root canal treatment to open your tooth wide up. Next, we clean out and replace any infected pulp or blood vessels. To finish the job, we seal your treated tooth with a new coating.
Signs You Need a Root Canal
If you’re not sure whether you need a root canal, look for some of the tell-tale signs of tooth infection. For example, tooth pain, sensitivity, and swollen gums aren’t normal and suggest that you’ve got a rotten tooth. In addition, if the pain seems specific to one particular tooth, you should schedule a dentist appointment as soon as possible.
