When a tooth becomes severely infected, serious problems can occur. Infection will spread through the root system to other teeth and can even result in the need for tooth extraction. At Sutter Dental, our skilled team will take care of your infected tooth, so you can be free from both pain and infection again.
How can a root canal help?
Before root canal therapy had been discovered, tooth extractions were the only option for treating deep tooth infections. Fortunately, advanced dental technology has made it possible to save teeth through root canal therapy. If treated quickly and efficiently, a natural tooth can be saved.
During root canal therapy, our skilled team can carefully remove infected pulp from the affected tooth. After removing the infected pulp, we gently clean out the tooth and seal it to help you keep healthy in the future. We will then fit a natural-looking dental crown to provide strength and protection to your tooth.
How do I know if I need a root canal?
Several signs can indicate a deep tooth infection, especially if you have several symptoms at the same time. Some of the symptoms of a root canal include the following:
- An abscessed tooth.
- Swelling around the affected tooth.
- Severe or chronic toothaches that often affect functionality.
- Increased tooth sensitivity.
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, a root canal can put you on the path to a pain-free life again.
