Waking up with a severe toothache can disrupt your entire day. The constant pain prevents you from concentrating on the most basic of tasks, so call your dentist right away! Ignoring this common symptom of an infection can allow bacteria to break away and travel throughout your bloodstream. Fortunately, we can take an X-ray of your problem tooth and determine if you require a root canal. This therapy accesses the inner pulp chamber to clear all decaying material and seal it against future infection. Because your root canal permanently alters the outer structure of your tooth, we design a dental cap that restores your tooth’s function and appearance. By clearing your infection, your pain subsides, allowing you to regain your quality of life.
At your Moreno Valley, CA, dental practice, we are standing by to provide emergency services in your time of need. When you experience a tooth infection, you should not wait until your next cleaning to seek treatment. Instead, call us right away and we will see you as soon as we can. After clearing your infection, we can discuss strategies for preventing future harm to your smile.
Dental Injuries Lead To Infection
When a tooth is healthy, it enjoys an outer layer that protects against the bacteria present in your mouth. This enamel seal takes on hundreds of pounds of pressure as you bite and chew throughout the day. However, any physical or chemical injury that breaks the seal can lead to cavities and infections as bacteria enter the more sensitive inner layers. That’s why we ask you to report any sudden injuries as soon as they occur. While chips or cracks may seem superficial, we can take an X-ray to determine if your tooth is at risk before any further damage occurs.
Performing Your Root Canal Therapy
When we see foreign material inside your tooth’s pulp chamber, we suggest performing a root canal right away. We rely on local anesthetics to enhance your comfort during treatment, meaning a root canal should be no more uncomfortable than a common dental filling. After clearing out the pulp chamber, we will design a dental crown to restore your tooth’s appearance completely above the gumline.
