Having a tooth that is infected is never a pleasant experience. Discomfort in your teeth due to a sinus infection or lodged food is bad enough, but when the pain occurs deep inside the tooth, it can oftentimes be unbearable. This is why a root canal in Calimesa can be a beneficial treatment option. Dr. Scott Parker can examine your problem tooth to determine if a root canal is necessary. If so, you’ll be feeling relief in no time thanks to him and his highly skilled team of professionals. If you’re looking to finally be rid of the pain that’s plaguing your tooth, call us today and schedule an appointment.
When the nerve or the pulp of your tooth becomes infected as a result of decay or damage, a root canal not only eliminates the pain but salvages the tooth, preventing the need for extraction. Some situations that might require a root canal include:
If you have extreme sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, have a discolored tooth or pain that radiates when biting down or applying pressure, you should contact us immediately.
During the procedure, Dr. Parker will administer anesthesia to ensure you are comfortable and feeling no discomfort. He will then begin to use specialized instruments to access the interior portion of your tooth, removing the infected pulp and bacteria. Once it is removed and cleaned thoroughly, he will fill it with the appropriate material, sealing the tooth so that future infection will be less likely to occur. Finally, we’ll place a customized dental crown as a form of added protection.
Unfortunately, there are many misconceptions about root canals. It has gained a bad reputation over the years, but Dr. Parker and his team want to set the record straight to help alleviate any concerns or fears you may have.
