Root Canal Therapy in Charlotte, NC - ART Dentistry - Tooth Pain Treatment
Root canals therapy is an emergency procedure where the pulp, the soft tissue center of the tooth, and roots of the tooth are treated for infection. Damage to the nerve and pulp area can occur from excessive decay, gum disease, restoration failure, or a crack or chip in the tooth. Root canal procedures are similar to a routine filling, but are completed in two appointments to allow time for the creation and delivery of the permanent crown. At ART Dentistry, we strive to create a comfortable atmosphere for patients during root canal treatment and all other procedures at our South Park dental office in Charlotte, NC.
Why Do I need a Root Canal?
The removal of bacteria and infection within the tooth will help to protect your overall dentition. The idea behind a root canal is to save as much original tooth as possible, a conservative approach to oral health rather than extracting the diseased tooth. Protected by a cap, the remainder of the tooth is left to support a healthy bite and an aesthetic smile.
Signs and Symptoms
Although so patients do not experience any symptoms of a root canal, severe toothache or continued sensitivity can be a sign of a severely damaged tooth. If the pulp is damaged, bacteria being to multiply and can cause an infection, or an abscessed tooth. Signs of an infection within the root canal can cause:
- Swelling in the face, neck, head
- A raised bump near the troubled tooth
- Drainage that can occur through a hole on the side of the tooth, making its way into gum or into the skin
