Some patients are wary of the idea of root canal therapy, thinking it to be extremely painful compared to other procedures. Not only is this not true, but undergoing the procedure is actually meant to stop your pain. Root canal therapy is often the solution to a toothache caused by an infection, and it lets you save your tooth from being extracted. Looking for relief from your toothache? Call Dr. Nguyen today to see if a root canal is the answer.
After numbing your mouth and using an appropriate type of sedation to put you into a relaxed state, we’ll create a small hole in the tooth. This gives us access to the pulp chamber where the infection has taken root. The pulp itself will be entirely removed, and the inside of the tooth will be thoroughly cleaned to get rid of any bacteria that might have been left behind. Then, we’ll simply fill the tooth with a biocompatible material, reseal it, and place a crown in order to protect it.
