Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment involves removing the infected dental pulp of a tooth, cleaning the tooth and placing a filling to prevent further infection. Root canals are a service offered at Pleasant Dental.
While teeth can seem invincible pearly whites that break down food and help make a great smile, they have layers and can weaken over time. Without proper care, a tooth can sustain enough damage to expose the inner layer, known as the dental pulp. Infected dental pulp will cause varying levels of pain when eating, speaking or at any time of day. Fortunately, we can help.
We can use root canal treatment to help remove the infected dental pulp, preventing the spread of the infection to other teeth and helping to relieve pain. This procedure will also help to protect the tooth from further infection. Root canal procedures may be the sturdy and lasting solution to an infected tooth.
If you notice pain or sensitivity in a tooth, call us and schedule an appointment to see if root canal treatment can help.
At Pleasant Dental, our goal is to give you the smile of your dreams. Schedule your cosmetic consultation today.
