Restorative dental work should take place as soon as you are aware that you have a problem with a tooth. If you wait to schedule treatment, the problem can worsen, which can lead to more discomfort, more permanent damage, and a greater risk of infection and tooth loss! Your Riverside, CA dentist’s office is here to help when you need to do something about dental decay, even when the problem has already grown serious. We provide advanced services, including root canal therapy and tooth extraction when necessary, when a cavity has left your tooth in poor condition. To make your experience in the dentist’s chair easier, we can offer dental sedation to help you remain in a relaxed state.
How Worried Should You Be About Your Problem Tooth?
If your tooth is already in recurring pain, or if you have problems with persistent sensitivity and visible change in the tooth, it could be infected. At this point, you may need more than just cavity treatment with a dental filling. You can avoid problems like this when you schedule regular dental checkups. At these appointments, your dentist can point out a problem with decay before you start to feel symptoms and deal with it by placing a dental filling!
When Treatment Calls For More Than A Dental Filling
If a cavity is too large, it will take more than a filling to restore your tooth. A dental crown is used whenever a filling is not supportive enough. In addition to using a crown to protect your tooth, we may need to provide root canal therapy to deal with an internal problem. In the most severe cases, teeth that are badly affected by decay may need to be extracted. This stops active pain, and it prevents bacteria from spreading and causing an infection in another area.
Using Dental Sedation To Make Treatment More Comfortable
For people who are generally anxious about dental care, or those who feel nervous about an upcoming procedure, we do offer dental sedation. Sedation can make your time in the dentist’s chair more comfortable. This can help you remain aware of what is happening, but it can reduce nervousness people may experience when being treated.
