A root canal is a procedure that our dentists frequently use to preserve teeth that have suffered from nerve damage. If a tooth nerve is infected or dying, it can create a cyst or infection around the root - impacting neighboring teeth and even the health of our patient. It also causes the tooth to be destroyed from the inside out.
How can you tell if your tooth’s nerve is damaged? You may be seeing or experiencing symptoms like:
- Darkening of the tooth
- An abscess (or “pimple”) along the gumlines
Thankfully, it’s possible to save the tooth by treating it endodontically. Endodontic procedures are better known as “root canals” in most cases. While some dentists refer their patients to an endodontist (a root canal specialist,) A Caring Dental Group provides treatment right here at our Cleveland office. There’s no need to see a provider whom you’ve never met before.
Advanced Root Canal Technology For Gentler Treatment
Our office has invested in state-of-the-art technology that allows us to perform endodontic treatments quicker, more comfortably, and in fewer visits. Our Pulsar device provides faster cleaning in hard-to-reach microscopic spaces inside of your nerve chamber.
Acoustic technology delivers cleansing fluids through the canal to lift away 40% more bacteria than conventional types of treatment. This greatly reduces your risk of ever needing a retreatment in the future. Conventional techniques use hand files that are used by a dentist. Our technique is much more reliable.
After a tooth has been sealed off, we will need to place a crown over the top of it, preventing wear or fracture to the non-vital enamel. These functional yet aesthetic crowns keep your tooth healthy and beautiful for years.
