Endodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that deals with the treatment of the root canal in the tooth. The root canal procedure can preserve a tooth that otherwise would be permanently lost. It’s a great solution to help preserve your natural teeth and avoid the additional expense of a bridge or implant to replace the missing tooth.
WHY DO WE NEED ENDODONTIC PROCEDURES?
When a tooth becomes deeply infected, the infection can potentially spread from the tooth and into the gums and surrounding tissue, including the bone. During the later stages of this serious infection, you can suffer with extreme pain in the mouth and face. If you are experiencing pain right now, we recommend that you call Dr. Rosenson for an immediate diagnosis. He can relieve the pain and schedule treatment your root canal as soon as possible. Remember, catching early decay can stop a full on oral infection that will require a root canal. That is where regular check-ups come in as we like to prevent these treatments as much as we can. A tooth that has been broken or damaged is always susceptible to an infection and should be treated as soon as possible.
THE ENDODONTIC PROCEDURE EXPLAINED
An endodontic root canal treatment involves cleaning the infected pulp out of the tooth. A rubber compound is used to fill the root canal, and a dental crown will be placed over the tooth for additional durability and strength. In many cases, your dentist will prescribe an antibiotic medication for the root canal infection. Even though the endodontic treatment cleans and preserves the tooth, the infection will still need to be treated with antibiotics for complete healing to stop the elevated infection.
