How A Root Canal Addresses Tooth Pain

If you have a problem with tooth pain that you seem to be stuck with, talk to your dentist! When discomfort does not go away after a short time, it can be due to trouble with advanced dental decay or an injury. When problems affect the inner chamber of the tooth - the pulp - your oral health can continue to worsen, leaving you at risk for losing your tooth! At our Columbia, TN dentist's office, we can provide root canal therapy to address this trouble. After performing this treatment, we can make sure your tooth remains safe by supplying a custom-made dental crown to protect it.

Are You Growing Worried About Tooth Pain?

A short period of tooth pain can affect you when you have problems with sinus pressure. Issues with enamel erosion or gum line recession can lead to increased dental sensitivity, something that can cause brief spikes of discomfort. For those who are impacted by a persistent toothache, the trouble can be more serious, and may call for restorative dental work. Our practice can meet with you, perform an evaluation, and determine if root canal therapy is appropriate.

Scheduling A Root Canal Treatment

During your root canal procedure, your dentist carefully removes bacteria and damaged tissues within your tooth's central chamber, a space known as the pulp. Removing bacteria and infected tissues will stop worsening discomfort, and it will prevent further trouble with the spread of harmful microbes beyond your roots. Once this work is done, we can shift our focus from addressing an active health issue to making sure your tooth structure is protected.

Restoring Your Tooth After Your Root Canal

While root canals stop problems with your tooth from worsening, you still need protection for that tooth after treatment is completed. With a dental crown, we can safely protect a tooth by capping it to prevent further infection issues or physical damage. With your restoration in place, you should feel comfortable while biting, chewing, and speaking. Good daily habits and regular dental exams will help you make sure your crown remains healthy and secure.
