Tooth Pain May Be Caused By Infection
If you are experiencing tooth pain, a common reason may be tooth infection. Root canal treatment is designed to save your tooth from infection by cleansing the interior in order to preserve the original structure. These infections within the pulp and canal are typically caused by deep cavities, traumatic injuries or fractures. Wall Centre Dental will help you avoid losing your teeth to infection by quickly and effectively cleaning out the infection and sealing your tooth with a dental crown. A dental crown will usually be needed to complete your root canal treatment. Our crowns are long-lasting, durable and designed to match the existing color of your teeth and smile. By capping a tooth with a dental crown we can protect the original tooth structure after treatment has been performed and allow you to use the tooth like normal without discomfort.
Our Root Canal Process
During a root canal, our doctors will access the interior of your tooth and use small tools to clean out the infection within the tooth structure. Once the infected pulp is removed, the tooth roots will be reshaped and the structure will be reinforced with a biocompatible material called gutta-percha. A natural-looking dental crown will be used to restore your tooth and protect the interior. After root canal treatment, you will be able to return to a normal lifestyle and use your tooth like normal.
