Root Canal Dentists in Raleigh, NC
Have you been experiencing tooth and gum pain? If so, it's important to get to the dentist as early as possible. At our dental office, we’ll determine if the tooth is infected or diseased. Diagnosing the problem early ensures that more treatment options are available for you and that the issue is addressed in a timely manner. If you currently suffer from root canal disease, the dentists at our office can help.
Root canals are performed as an alternative to removing a tooth. Inside each tooth, a strand of dental pulp carries nutrients, tissue and blood from the root to the tooth. This pulp can become diseased and die, which leads to the entire tooth becoming diseased if left untreated. At that point, more serious treatment options, including dental surgery, may need to be considered.
The Basics of a Root Canal Procedure
After our dentists provide a preliminary examination of your mouth to assess your problematic tooth and the surrounding teeth, we then offer a consultation to discuss your options. If we believe the tooth can be salvaged, then we will set up an appointment to perform a root canal procedure. That way, you will be able to keep the tooth.
Avoid the physical and financial pain of putting off a procedure that can spare you from further problems in the future. While it may seem that ignoring your dental problems will make them go away, it actually makes them become much worse. We know that visiting the dentist might not be a pleasant prospect, but the minor inconvenience of an earlier visit significantly reduces the spread of damage and disease to your teeth and gums.
