Root Canal Treatment Near You
Do you have persistent pain near the base of your tooth? Have you suddenly become more sensitive to hot and cold or certain foods? This may be a sign that you need a root canal. Our dentists will fully examine the area of concern to recommend the right treatment. If a root canal is necessary, you’re in great hands here at Guildford Village Dental.
What to Expect During a Root Canal
Root canal procedures are straightforward treatments in most cases. The appointment runs a bit longer than filling a cavity and involves cleaning out the canals below your teeth where the roots sit. Local anesthesia is used to ensure you don’t feel a thing during the procedure. Afterward, our dentists will discuss the best options to protect the tooth from further damage.
What Causes a Root Infection?
Various causes can lead to root infection. Insufficient brushing, gum disease, and trauma to the mouth are all frequent causes of infected roots. A daily oral hygiene routine and regular dental check-ups can help prevent root infections from forming in most people. If you have questions about better protecting your teeth, ask our dentists, we’re happy to help.
