Nervous About A Root Canal? We Can Answer Your Questions

If you are experiencing the pain of an infected or injured tooth for the first time, you can be eager to put a stop to your discomfort. Unfortunately, people who are in need of restorative dental work sometimes delay that care because they have anxieties about what their treatment experience might be like. You should know that the care you receive can minimize discomfort while putting a stop to the pain caused by your unhealthy tooth. Our Shrewsbury, MA dentist’s office has experience addressing potentially serious dental issues through root canal treatment. This procedure can stop a worrying infection before it has the chance to do more harm, and we can make sure your tooth’s appearance and function are restored.

How Does A Root Canal Treatment Help My Tooth?

Root canal treatment will see your dentist carefully remove infected tissues from your tooth’s pulp before sealing the area to protect against future problems. This process is done in order to stop bacteria that have started to damage living tissues that support your tooth, and to prevent the further spread of those bacteria through the roots of a tooth. Performing this procedure can be necessary in order to save you from losing a tooth, and it can put an end to persistent pain from an infection.

What Happens To My Tooth After A Root Canal Is Performed?

After your pulp has been cleaned and sealed, we can place a dental crown in order to protect the tooth against further troubles. Our practice relies on E4D technology to craft lifelike restorations in one day, so we can shorten the time other practices require to fully restore your tooth. This technology produces crowns that are sized and tinted to provide cosmetic as well as functional support.

Do I Really Need A Root Canal If I Don’t Have A Cavity?

Root canals are often linked to cavity treatment, but the procedure can be beneficial in other circumstances. After a review of an injured tooth, your dentist may determine that you need a root canal treatment for an infection. This is often a problem when a person cracks their tooth, as the opening can be a gathering place for bacteria.
