Root canal treatment becomes the last option to save a tooth that has been damaged from decay, trauma or a crack. The treatment becomes important when the nerves and blood vessels within the tooth die or get damaged. Dr. Vassallo has years of experience and knowledge of preforming root canal treatment.
During root canal treatment, we clean the tooth from inside, freeing the canals deep inside the tooth from bacteria or infected contents. We use the latest dental technology and leverage our state-of-art office to keep your tooth free from of any infection. If you are experiencing sharp pain or swelling, this may be a sign there is damage to the tooth that requires root canal treatment.
Our dentists first disinfect the tooth, then fill all the root canals before placing a temporary dressing on top of the fillings. The main purpose of the treatment is to repair and save a tooth that is decayed or infected. Also called endodontic treatment, it involves not only removal of tooth infection but also filling and sealing of the canal where the nerve got affected.
Any delay in performing root canal treatment may lead you towards losing more teeth and feeling more discomfort. Once the treatment is complete, the patient will need to visit the office one more time for the dentist to place a permanent crown over the tooth which will prevent further damage.
