If you’re living with tooth pain and are worried about seeking treatment, we encourage you to contact our office right away! Tooth pain is almost always a sign that decay or infection is present. If these problems are inside your tooth and affecting the tooth pulp, your tooth could be in serious danger of needing extraction! Thankfully, root canals in Maineville, OH are a comfortable and simple way we can both end your tooth pain and save your natural tooth.
Signs You Need a Root Canal
Persistent tooth pain
Pain when biting or chewing
Sensitivity to hot and cold
Swelling of nearby gums
Discoloration of the tooth
How Our Root Canals Work
First, we want to assure you that root canals are actually a very painless procedure because we never perform any treatment before numbing your tooth and gums. We also offer sedation options, if you need additional help feeling calm and relaxed during your appointment. However, most patients report that their root canals caused no more discomfort than a simple cavity filling! Once you’re comfortable, we’ll remove the top portion of your tooth to gain access to the root canals. Next, we’ll clear these canals of any damaged pulp and infected tissue. To keep your tooth structurally strong, we’ll fill these canals with a hardening material called gutta-percha. Then, we’ll seal the tooth to ensure no bacteria can enter the area in the future. Generally, to restore strength and aesthetics to your tooth, we’ll attach a dental crown in the same day.
The Convenience of Same-Day Crowns
We’re excited to offer same-day dentistry with our CEREC technology so that you can receive a custom, quality dental crown the same day as your root canal therapy. Using CEREC, we can design and mill this crown right in our office and while you relax in the chair. Our dental crowns are made from extremely durable ceramic or porcelain material, which has the same coloration as natural teeth and can withstand biting and chewing pressure. When attached to your tooth, it will restore the size, shape, and color to blend seamlessly with your other teeth. With our CEREC technology, you won’t have to endure multiple appointments or temporaries!
