Root Canal Therapy – Non Surgical
If you are experiencing severe tooth pain or pain in the jaw, chances are you have an infection. The infection can be because of severe tooth decay, resulting in the formation of a tooth abscess and damaging the nerves. In some severe cases, the infection may spread further down into the gums and even the jaw bone.
If you are suffering from severe toothache, you need to visit an endodontic specialist. Endodontic means inside the tooth, and endodontists specialize in treating the pulp, which holds the teeth nervous system and blood supply. They will perform root canal therapy to prevent the infection from spreading, restoring the tooth to full functionality.
In most cases, the infection causes a substantial amount of pain, and most patients seek help initially. At Serenity Dental, we specialize in root canal therapy and can help prevent further damage to the tooth, gums, and jaw with the help of non-surgical root canal therapy.
What is Non-Surgical Root Canal Therapy
Early detection of the infection allows the endodontist to restore the tooth's health with a non-surgical root canal. A root canal involves access to the pulpy area and digging out the infected pulp and damaged nerves. Even though the nerve supply system is essential when the tooth is developing, it can survive without it once it is fully mature.
Non-Surgical Root Canal Process
The non-surgical root canal is similar to the process of filling or restorative dentistry. Before starting the procedure, the endodontist will get an x-ray to determine how far the infection has spread.
If the tooth structure gets damaged because of the infection, the endodontist may have to insert supportive metal inserts to hold it in place.
At Serenity Dental, we strive to provide optimal dental care services to our customers with our patient-centered treatment approach.
