Do You Have a Toothache? Pressure? Swelling? A Root Canal May Be the Right Solution
There can be many reasons for experiencing pain in the mouth. However, tooth pain is often the sign of a problem within a tooth. Internal damage caused by advanced decay, trauma or cracks allow infection to invade the internal area, or pulp, of the tooth. When this occurs, a routine procedure known as a root canal is needed to remove the infection and save the tooth. Leaving such a tooth untreated only invites further problems for your smile, such as bone damage, tooth loss and risk of systemic illness. Protect your oral health and smile from further harm, and visit Dr. Michaela Tozzi for the gentle, comfortable root canal care you need!
Save Your Smile with Root Canal Therapy
Root canals have received a bad reputation for being painful, dreadful procedures. But thanks to modern technology, the root canal procedure is actually very comfortable. Nearly pain-free, in fact. Dr. Tozzi ensures your total comfort by thoroughly numbing the treatment area, and provides sedation if needed. She then removes infected tissue from within the tooth and fills the inside portions with a special material. The tooth is sealed and allowed to heal. Root canal treated teeth are more brittle, and often need crowns for coverage and protection.
Signs and symptoms a root canal may be needed:
- Tooth pain
- Pain on biting
- Temperature sensitivity
- Graying or discoloration
- Abscess or pimple on gums
