Have you been experiencing a severe toothache? Has your dentist diagnosed you with extreme tooth decay, infection or even damage? Does your affected tooth appear to be getting darker? You may be in desperate need of a root canal! At Garden Lakes Family Dentistry we are proud to offer root canal treatment in Phoenix for our patients that are interested in experiencing relief and preventing further complications. Not sure if a Phoenix root canal is the best option for you? Common symptoms that a patient may need a root canal include:
While many people believe a root canal is a scary experience, the entire process is actually quite simple and easy. Deep within your tooth, underneath that white layer called enamel is a root canal and tooth pulp, in this area nerves, blood vessels and other connective tissues are stored, keeping the tooth healthy. When the tooth root or pulp becomes damaged, infected or decayed it can cause discomfort, pain and serious issues including infection.
During root canal treatment, your Phoenix endodontist will create a tiny hole in the affected tooth, allowing them to access the root canal. The root canal will then be thoroughly cleaned, disinfected and sealed. Following your root canal, a dental crown is recommended to improve the appearance, strength and function of your affected tooth.
