Oxygen and other essential nutrients travel through this canal, so a root canal infection can cause serious damage not just to your teeth but to your general wellbeing.
Infection is usually the result of bacterial buildup due to poor oral hygiene or trauma to the tooth structure.
As with any infection, the sooner we can identify and treat a root canal infection, the greater the likelihood of your tooth making a full recovery. If the infection goes untreated long enough, it can cause an abscess.
Abscessed teeth are incredibly painful and usually require extraction, so it’s best to come to our office as soon as you experience any type of noticeable tooth pain.
While root canal treatment procedures have a bad reputation for being painful and traumatic, that doesn’t need to be the case. At Bateman Aesthetic & Restorative Dentistry, we use cutting-edge technology and sedation dentistry to make root canal treatment and recovery as efficient and painless as possible.
If you are experiencing tooth pain or other distressing symptoms, contact our office immediately. We want to relieve your tooth pain and restore your oral health as quickly as possible!
