Dr. Neslund Provides Experienced Endodontic Care and Root Canal Therapy at Our Carlisle, PA Dental Office
If you’re suffering with extreme tooth decay, you might be in need of 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. But 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. That’s why we encourage you to entrust Dr. Neslund of Carlisle Family and Cosmetic Dentistry with your root canal therapy. With lots of experience, he knows how to provide good results for excellent oral health.
Symptoms that your pulp is infected include:
- Tooth swelling
- Extreme sensitivity to hot and cold
- Pain in the tooth or gums
If you suffer from any of these symptoms, make an appointment to visit our office very soon. You don't want to wait to have a chronic tooth pain or discomfort checked -- left untreated, a pulp infection can cause you to eventually lose a tooth that might otherwise have been saved. Root canal therapy can actually save a tooth that would otherwise be lost. When infection reaches the nerve that runs through your tooth, it threatens the life of your tooth, eventually requiring the tooth be removed. With root canal therapy, we remove the diseased nerve and fill the tooth with a special material and cap 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.
Don’t suffer with a toothache and lose your tooth because you’re scared of root canal therapy. Let us stop the pain and save the tooth instead. Contact Carlisle Family and Cosmetic Dentistry to discuss your tooth pain today. Whether you’re in Boiling Springs, Carlisle, Mechanicsburg, Camp Hill, or nearby towns, you can trust Dr. Neslund to provide top quality endodontic care for optimum oral health.
