Middleburg Heights, OH
If you are experiencing constant pain or pressure, as well as swelling and sensitive gums, you may have a tooth infection. It is important to see a dentist to prevent more complications. Often times, these are symptoms of a root canal.
A root canal is the process by which a dentist cleans out the inside nerves of a tooth then replaces it with material sealing the inside of the root. This is to prevent infection spreading.
The tooth becomes very brittle and can easily break after the nerve is taken out of the tooth. It is highly recommended that a crown be fabricated for a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy. A crown will help ensure that the tooth does not break. It will also improve the appearance of the tooth and will make it much more likely that the root canal treatment is successful.
Michael P. Waters DDS has the ability to save badly decayed and diseased teeth with root canal therapy.
