If you’re suffering with extreme tooth decay, you might need root canal therapy. When you hear the term “root canal,” you might feel fear – people have considered root canal therapy synonymous with pain for decades. If you’ve been experiencing chronic toothaches and pain, root canal therapy can be the answer, and when done correctly, the procedure should not be painful. In fact, it should get you out of pain rather than cause more discomfort. That’s why we encourage you to entrust Dr. Neslund with your root canal therapy. With years of experience, he knows how to provide good results for excellent oral health.
Symptoms that your pulp is infected include:
If you suffer from any of these symptoms, make an appointment to visit our dental office as soon as possible. You don't want to wait to have a chronic tooth pain or discomfort checked. Left untreated, a dental infection can cause you to eventually lose a tooth that might otherwise have been saved with root canal therapy. When infection reaches the nerve that runs through your tooth, it threatens the life of your tooth, eventually requiring the tooth to be removed. With root canal therapy, we remove the diseased nerve and fill the tooth with a special material, capping the tooth with a crown for extra strength and protection.
Having your tooth treated with root canal therapy generally saves you money. This procedure typically doesn't cost as much as tooth extraction combined with tooth replacement.
