Endodontics Miami – Downtown – Brickell – Miami Beach
A root canal is the best way to save the tooth, maintain its health and the alignment of the adjacent teeth too. In this procedure, all the infected pulp will be carefully removed. This space and the canals that lead to it will be filled with a medicinal-base, dental filling after which it will be sealed. Once the root canal has been completed, a crown will be fitted on the treated tooth to protect it from future decay. One of our best dentists in Miami will provide you complete information about the procedure, the timeline for the treatment, its pros and cons as well as costs etc. A root canal and crown fitting treatments will need multiple visits and you will be given details about this as well. We provide affordable root canals and a range of dental treatments in hygienic and safe settings, using the latest technology.
When the root of a tooth becomes infected or decayed, or an infection or abscess develops on the inside of the tooth, a person likely needs root canal therapy. A person might choose to receive root canal therapy if the root canal therapy involves removing the living tissue, nerves, bacteria, and decay from a tooth and filling it with medicated dental materials in order to save the tooth. Receiving root canal therapy is often the cheaper, more effective option than merely extracting the tooth because extraction can lead to significant problems with adjacent teeth.
What to Expect at Relax and Smile Dental Care
A root canal procedure often requires only one visit but can require more depending on the patient’s situation. When the patient sits down, one of our dentists will first numb the tooth and place a sheet of rubber around the tooth to keep it dry during the procedure. The dentist creates an access opening at the top of a tooth and the pulp, nerve tissue, bacteria, and decay are removed. The dentist then thoroughly cleans the tooth and seals it with a permanent filling.
The following week, at a second appointment, our dentist fills and seals the inside cavity of the tooth and a filling is put on top of the tooth.
All teeth that receive root canal treatment should receive a crown to protect the tooth.
When Should I get a Root Canal?
There are a number of different factors that can damage the core of your teeth. At Relax and Smile Dental Care, our dentist Miami may recommend root canal treatment in case of complex teeth decay problems. Some common signs of it include:
- Excruciating pain in a tooth.
- Sensitivity to cold & heat even after these stimuli have been taken away from your teeth.
- Formation of a severe abscess that is impacting the pulp of the tooth.
- Trauma to a tooth
- Tooth fracture
- Deep cavities
When you come to us with any of these dental problems, Dr. Steven Roth will carry out a detailed examination of your teeth and gums. He will assess whether a root canal is an option for you. A root canal is recommended only in conditions where the tooth is still strong and fitted firmly in the jawbone.
