Have you been told your tooth has an infection? This means bad bacteria have reached the tooth’s innermost layer (pulp chamber). Unlike other forms of infection, an infected or abscessed tooth can’t be cured with diligent hygiene or antibiotics. Root canal therapy also called endodontics from Total Health Dental in Aurora, Illinois, removes the diseased tissues and restores your tooth to make it look and function like new again.
Don’t suffer unnecessarily because of an infected tooth. Instead, schedule an appointment with Dr. Khaja Mohsinuddin to relieve discomfort and restore your smile to total health.
Have you been experiencing toothache, gum swelling, bad breath, sensitivity, and other symptoms of tooth infections? We urge you to seek treatment immediately before the tooth infection causes irreversible damage to the tooth and surrounding structures. Endodontic therapy can remove the troublesome dental pulp to restore oral health.
The following are the reasons you shouldn’t delay/avoid a root canal.
You may have read or heard that root canals cause discomfort — this couldn’t be further from the truth. Instead of causing discomfort, the treatment relieves toothaches and saves your tooth from extraction. The procedure itself does not cause discomfort, thanks to modern dental advancements. Before the procedure, we numb your mouth with an injectable anesthetic. While anesthesia works for many patients, you can also consider our sedation dentistry options to optimize your dental experience.
