Do you suffer from severe tooth pain when chewing or biting? Has your tooth become sensitive to cold or hot temperatures? Are the gums surrounding your painful tooth swollen and tender or has the tooth become darkened or discolored? If you answered, “yes,” to any of these questions, your tooth may be infected. When a tooth becomes infected or if damage or decay reaches beyond the outer layer of the tooth and into the dental pulp (the innermost layer of the tooth where the nerves, blood vessels, and other tissues are located), not only will you likely experience excruciating pain, you may also experience the death of the tooth. To prevent this, our dentists may recommend root canal therapy.
During root canal therapy, we carefully remove the infected and damaged tissues from the tooth. We then thoroughly clean the tooth and may also reshape the root canal system. The tooth is then filled, allowing us to place a restoration, such as a crown, on the tooth to restore its strength and structure. In most cases, Drs. Sonny and Fara Afshar are able to complete a root canal in only one or two appointments. For more information about root canal therapy and our other treatments, please contact our team today at Country Club Dental. We look forward to speaking with you!
