Has a deep cavity or tooth fracture left you with an infected tooth? At Jamestown Family Dental, we can help you treat your symptoms and your infection with a simple, straightforward root canal procedure. During your procedure, our dentist will clean out the interior of your tooth, removing the nerve and any traces of bacteria or decay. Then we will fill your tooth with a safe, medicated material. As the last step in your procedure, we will cover your tooth with a custom-made crown, restoring its appearance and functionality.
Symptoms of an infection include:
- Severe toothache
- Extra sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
- Swelling in the gums
- Discolored tooth
- Persistent or recurring pimple on the gums
If left untreated, you may end up losing your tooth. But thankfully, with a root canal, you can save both your tooth and the root underneath it.
Preparing for Your Procedure
Prior to your procedure, our team will fully explain what you can expect from your procedure and will answer any questions or concerns you might have. We want you to be as informed as possible and to feel absolutely comfortable with the treatment plan we recommend. What’s more, using our office’s advanced tools, and a service like oral sedation, you can look forward to a stress-free experience.
