If you have a serious ache in one of your teeth that will not go away, seek treatment immediately. Pain that lasts more than a day can indicate a bacterial infection that left alone, could spread to other parts of your body. The pain you feel results from inflammation in the tooth’s inner chamber pressing against your sensitive nerves. To relieve your symptoms and help restore your smile, we could perform a root canal to clean out the bacterial deposit. Afterwards, we can place a dental crown to protect your injured tooth.

At your Moreno Valley, CA dental practice, we are standing by to treat your infection when toothaches strike. By scheduling an emergency appointment, we can remove bacteria before it spreads outside of your tooth.

How Do My Teeth Become Infected?

When your teeth are healthy, their outer enamel layer protects the insides from bacteria that live in your mouth. When physical trauma or an advanced case of tooth decay breaks this seal, bacteria may enter and create a deposit within. Your body’s immune system responds with an inflammatory process that swells against your nerves. While painful, this signal lets you know that something is amiss. To help prevent infections, regular dental checkups clean out plaque to prevent decay and detect cavities before they can grow larger. Adopting a preventive attitude towards your oral health can help you avoid the need for root canal therapy.

Receiving Your Root Canal

When you visit our office, we will examine your tooth to determine if an infection is present. If so, we will begin your root canal by applying a local anesthetic to numb your tooth. Using special tools, we then access the inner chamber to clean out all bacteria and decay. Because this procedure inalterably changes the outer structure of your tooth, we must apply a seal to protect it against reinfection. We will then plan the placement of a dental crown to fully restore your tooth with a more permanent cap.
