Your teeth are meant to remain in the mouth for a lifetime. Your teeth may become decayed or injured, leading to the need for dental intervention. New Essence Dentistry professionals in Sacramento can provide safe and effective root canals for patients in order to get rid of oral health issues.
Endodontic treatment is used to treat issues on the inside of teeth. This area contains the pulp, which is made up of blood vessels, nerves, and tissues that nourish teeth while they are growing. The pulp can become irritated, inflamed, or infected, which requires dental intervention from a professional.
Inflammation and other issues with the pulp can occur for several reasons, such as:
In each case, bacteria enters the tooth and can cause an infection of the tissues. When they’re not removed from the mouth, then it can spread and begin to affect other areas in the mouth or body. Swelling as well as pain can be experienced along with damage to the jawbone.
When a New Essence Dentistry professional recommends a root canal, you will need to schedule an appointment. If you have any anxiety or fear of the dentist, let our staff members know and we may be able to provide sedation to keep you calm and make the experience more pleasant. The tooth will be prepared and then separated from the rest of the mouth.
The dentist will clear out the pulp in your tooth and clean the canal. A disinfectant solution will be used and medication will be placed in the tooth to get rid of the infection. A filling will be placed until the tooth has healed and a dental crown can be placed.
