Root canal therapy is a highly effective method of treatment for saving a natural tooth that has been severely compromised. Root canal treatment addresses damage underneath the outermost biting surface of your teeth, in a layer of core tissues, nerves and blood vessels, referred to as the dental pulp. Dental pulp plays the important role of delivering nutrients to your tooth when it is first developing, however, once a tooth is fully matured, it no longer requires dental pulp to remain functional. A fracture or deep decay can allow bacteria to seep in and infect the dental pulp, which can lead to a toothache. If you are experiencing oral pain, swelling or extreme sensitivity, it is important to contact your dentist right away, as these may be symptoms of an infection. During your Pembroke Pines root canal treatment, your dentist will remove the damaged dental pulp, clean and shape the pulp chamber, then seal the tooth with inert materials to prevent re-infection. Root canal treatment has a 95% success rate, and a tooth that has been treated with a root canal can remain healthy and functional throughout your life.
A Pembroke Pines root canal can save a deeply damaged tooth from extraction, and provide much needed relief from the symptoms of a toothache. Your expert dentist and friendly staff at Amicus Dental Center will keep you comfortable and relaxed throughout treatment. To learn more about our services, or to schedule an appointment, call today.
