Preserve Your Natural Smile With Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy, also known as endodontics, is a branch of dentistry that focuses on diseases and injuries of the dental pulp, the soft tissues inside every tooth. Root canal therapy is one of the most common procedures at First-in-Smiles Dentistry in Matthews.
Why is root canal therapy necessary?
Sometimes, a tooth will become infected or damaged due to an accident, decay, or infection. When this occurs, the best option is to remove the bacteria from the inside of your tooth to preserve its structure and prevent further damage, pain, or the spread of infection.
What are the benefits of root canal therapy?
Root canal therapy can help save a damaged tooth from extraction, relieving pain and preserving the natural function of your teeth. When all your teeth are intact, you can chew various foods, enabling you to receive a full range of nutrients. You can also bite cleanly and confidently and speak more clearly.
Is root canal therapy safe?
Yes, it is very safe. We take all necessary measures at our practice to ensure that every procedure is completed safely and with minimal discomfort. Before your treatment, we’ll always discuss sedation options and help you decide which works best for you.
How long does it take to recover from root canal therapy?
The recovery period typically takes a few days to a week, depending on the individual. We recommend taking some time off work or school to recover properly and comfortably. Over-the-counter analgesics such as ibuprofen can be taken to relieve some of the discomfort.
Who should consider root canal therapy?
Individuals who suffer from infection or damage to their teeth should consider root canal therapy to save the tooth and reduce further complications. If you are experiencing any discomfort, please get in touch with First-in-Smiles Dentistry today for a consultation.
