Obtain A Healthy-Looking Smile With Root Canal Therapy
Endodontics is a branch of dentistry dedicated to treating the tooth’s root canal. At Philadelphia Smiles in Philadelphia, we’re proud to offer root canal therapy to our patients who suffer from the pain and discomfort of a root canal infection.
What is root canal therapy?
Root canal therapy is used when the tooth’s root canal becomes infected. The root canal connects the root and the pulp of your tooth. When it is infected, the surrounding gums become inflamed, resulting in moderate to severe pain.
What is involved in root canal therapy?
During your initial visit, we will examine how far the infection has progressed. From there, we can determine the best course of action. During a root canal procedure, the top of your tooth will be removed so we can access the canal. The decayed pulp is extracted, and the tooth is cleaned out. Following the procedure, we will fit you with a dental crown to keep your smile looking good as new.
What are the benefits of root canal therapy?
Root canal therapy can prevent tooth loss and jawbone deterioration. It prevents the infection from spreading to neighboring teeth, preserving the health of your mouth. The procedure is virtually painless, as we strive to ensure your comfort at every step.
