Why Would I Need Root Canal Treatment?
Underneath the dental enamel is the pulp, a compilation of nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues. The spread of tooth decay is the leading cause of why people require root canal therapy. The acid bacteria secrete eats away at the enamel and give access to the harmful microbes to reach the inner structures of the tooth.
When the pulp becomes compromised, signs of its infection may begin to develop such as inflammation and bleeding of the gums when brushing or flossing, constant toothache, and a sensitivity to temperatures.
At Rizkalla Dental Associates we make every effort to keep your smile as natural as possible. This is why we provide root canal treatment, to make sure extraction is not necessary.
Root Canal Therapy in Plymouth
Before undergoing the root canal procedure at Rizkalla dental, our dental professionals make sure to go through each step of the treatment process with you. This is to give you the opportunity to ask any questions or voice any concerns you may have. We then take a digital scan of your dental anatomy to gain the specifications needed to craft your custom crown.
During root canal treatment, our dentist gains access to the inner structures of the tooth through the top of the crown. Then one of our experienced dentists removes the infected pulp and sterilizes the tooth’s canal. Gutta-percha, a composite resin material, is then used to seal fill the tooth and protect the inner structures of bacterial invasion. A crown is placed atop of the natural tooth to protect the dental structure and restore function.
Our Plymouth practice offers same-day crowns, meaning you may leave your appointment with your permanent restoration with no need for a temporary.
