If you get nervous hearing the words “root canal therapy,” we at Family Dentistry of Maryland can assure you that there is no reason to. Despite the undeserved reputation that this important procedure has gotten in popular culture, the reality is that it is a safe and comfortable experience. And it is an important one, often as the only thing standing between you and the loss of your tooth.
Never settle for a tooth extraction when you can have our root canal 21401. Having a tooth removed means that you now have empty space that could leave you feeling self-conscious. Chewing may become less efficient, and your other teeth on that jaw can shift, causing you discomfort and possibly throwing your jaws out of their proper alignment. Instead, our root canal 21401 lets you maintain a viable tooth that will be every bit as durable as your other teeth are. Success it achieved in about 90% of cases, so you should feel confident in getting the needed results. The procedure, which is non-surgical (no cutting, no stitches, no bandages), is performed under local anesthesia. If you are nervous, though, we have sedation options to set your mind at ease. Our dentist will remove the injured pulp and nerve, clean the canals, disinfect them, and then seal them to help avoid any further infections. If more than one session is needed to finish the work, you will be fitted with a temporary crown. After the tooth has healed fully, impressions will then be taken for the making of a permanent crown, which restores the tooth to full size and functionality.
To schedule our root canal 21401, contact our office right now. We will have you seen as quickly as possible so that you won’t have to experience discomfort in your tooth for any longer than is absolutely necessary.
