Root Canals for Patients in Chardon, Jefferson, and Painesville
If you’re suffering from the agony of a toothache, you may have an infection inside of your tooth. Teeth with cavities or cracks are vulnerable to bacterial infiltration of the root canals—and this root canal infection is usually the cause of the discomfort and throbbing someone endures during a toothache. Thankfully, root canal therapy can offer relief and renewed oral health.
Root canal therapy begins by first numbing your tooth completely, and if needed, we offer nitrous oxide or oral sedation options to make your root canal anxiety-free. The next step is to clear out any diseased tissue. Once the infection is completely purged, we clean out the tooth and file it until smooth. The final step is to put gutta percha, a special dental material, inside to protect your tooth from further damage and infection.
We often recommend that teeth that have been treated with root canal therapy be capped with a crown. A crown strengthens your tooth, adding beauty and function to it.
If you need a root canal or other restorative dentistry procedure, make your appointment today at the Painesville Dental Group, Chardon Smile Center, or Dental Group of Jefferson.
