Preserving teeth through root canal therapy
Tooth extraction was once the only option for a diseased or deeply injured tooth. Now, root canal therapy is the treatment of choice to cure an abscessed tooth. Learn more from our in-house specialists at Canyon Family Dentistry & Orthodontics. You might need a root canal if you notice any of the following issues:
- Severe Toothaches
- Abscessed Teeth
- Bump(s) on the Gums
- Heightened Sensitivity to Hot or Cold
- Gum Tenderness
- Gum Swelling
Are root canals painful?
Your endodontist at Canyon Family Dentistry & Orthodontics uses innovative strategies and tools to ensure that your procedure is comfortable. Patients often comment that they experience little to no pain, and that the procedure is comparable to a standard dental filling.
On the other hand, an infected or abscessed tooth is very painful. An abscessed tooth can lead to an infection in the jaw or throughout the body, and will always cause severe discomfort. During a root canal, your Las Vegas endodontist will remove the damage to put an end to these risks and restore your well-being.
