If you have consistent pain in one of your teeth that will not subside, this can be a sign of a serious underlying health problem. Whenever you have this symptom, it can indicate an infection of the pulp within your tooth. Without professional treatment, your pain will continue and you risk spreading the infection to other parts of your body. A tooth infection is often the result of damage to the enamel that exposes the insides of your tooth to oral bacteria. Whether from physical damage or tooth decay, this exposure allows bacteria to infect and cause painful inflammation in your sensitive nerves.
At your Corona, CA dental practice, we understand how painful a tooth infection can be. This is why we offer root canal therapy to relieve your symptoms and protect your mouth from the dangerous spread of oral bacteria. To help restore your smile after performing this procedure, we will plan a restoration to restore the natural appearance of your injured tooth!
When Oral Bacteria Enter Your Pulp
Your body’s response to a bacterial infection of the pulp can be quite painful. This is because your inflammatory response causes swelling of tissues that press upon your sensitive nerves and continues to do so as long as the infection is present. This condition can greatly impinge your quality of life by causing distraction throughout the day. By contacting our office, we can arrange an emergency visit to resolve your pain if it becomes intolerable. The sooner we see you, the faster we can treat your concern, so you do not need to wait until your next general cleaning to treat your discomfort.
A Root Canal Therapy Can Remove Your Infection
To begin performing your root canal, we will first numb the affected area with a local anesthetic to provide comfort throughout the procedure. In fact, when performed properly, a root canal is no more painful than a regular procedure such as placing a dental filling. We then access the inside of your tooth using special tools to remove the infected material and clean the cavity within. To prevent reinfection while you heal from the procedure, we will apply a temporary seal for protection. Because a root canal permanently changes the structure of your tooth, we will place a dental crown after you heal to return the look and function of a strong and healthy tooth!
