Having a root canal done is a dreaded thought among most, we know, but sometimes this procedure becomes essential. When tooth decay begins to affect the nerve of the tooth, sometimes it takes an intense and invade procedure to save it. What a lot of people don’t realize is that simply pulling the tooth and removing it can actually cause more problems in the long run and have adverse effects on the adjacent teeth. Smiles by Songstad offers the most comfortable and stress-free root canal procedure in Green Hills.
Even though it’s a fairly invasive procedure, the results are pretty permanent given there aren’t any future infections. Depending on the severity of the situation, it may take a couple of appointments to evaluate and act to complete this procedure. After numbing the tooth, an opening is created right above the tooth to remove all of the nerve pulp and bacteria. During the follow-up procedure, the roots and cavities created are sealed and a filling is placed over the opening that was created.
It’s pretty normal for most patients to experience sensitivity as the tooth heals, but it doesn’t take long. We’re here for you. If you have any questions or comments about panoramic dental x-rays in Green Hills, feel free to call our office, or just fill out the contact form.
