When damage occurs to the pulp of a tooth due to severe decay or injury, a root canal procedure may be necessary. Although many people associate root canals with discomfort, it is often the best alternative to tooth extraction and can effectively eliminate tooth pain.
At Smile Vegas Dental, we prioritize gentle dentistry and strive to make each appointment as comfortable as possible. Our experienced dentists will carefully evaluate the tooth to determine the cause of the problem, which could be cavities, a split tooth, or root damage that endangers the nerve. If the nerve is compromised, a root canal may be required.
The effectiveness and extent of the root canal procedure depend on the tooth’s severity of damage. During treatment, the affected area is carefully assessed, and damaged or dead pulp is eliminated before the area is sealed. Following the root canal treatment, a crown over the tooth is often recommended to protect the tooth from breakage or further damage.
If you suspect that you require a root canal treatment, don’t hesitate to contact our expert dental team at Smile Vegas Dental. Our friendly dentists will conduct a thorough examination and propose a customized treatment plan to restore your oral health and comfort
