Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is one of the most proven, time-tested procedures in general dentistry. This endodontic procedure is designed to save a tooth that has been significantly compromised by damage or infection. This occurs when bacteria and infection invade the inner chamber of the tooth (the tooth pulp). It is within this tooth center that the nerves reside and where your tooth receives its vital supply of nutrients and blood. If the infection is allowed to continue, the tooth is at risk for survival. In addition, tooth infections can quickly spread to neighboring teeth and even affect other areas of your body. To help save your natural smile and restore your comfort, turn to Thousand Oaks Dentistry for effective root canal therapy in Sun Prairie.
Root Canals Offer Pain Relief for Infected Teeth!
Contrary to popular belief, root canals are not painful. In fact, root canal therapy is often the best solution for relieving the excruciating pain or sensitivity you are experiencing from your infected tooth. Most patients report no more discomfort during root canal therapy than they do when getting a dental filling. With the use of modern anesthetics and sedation dentistry, you do not have to fear your root canal procedure at Thousand Oaks Dentistry. In fact, patient comfort is our top priority!
During root canal therapy, one of our skilled dentists will carefully remove the infected tooth pulp. We will sanitize the inner tooth chamber and fill the empty space with a special rubber-like material to prevent future infection. Many patients will need a custom crown following their root canal therapy. This restores optimal strength and integrity to the affected tooth. You can trust that we will walk you through the entire procedure before we begin. It is important to us that our patients are informed and take an active role in their dental treatment plan.
If you are suffering from infected tooth pain, please contact our Sun Prairie office today. We are equipped to serve patients of all ages, and we reserve time in our daily schedules to treat urgent dental concerns just like yours.
