Root Canal Treatment – Fontainebleau, FL

Save Your Infected Tooth

Cavities and decay can lead to severe dental issues. If you do not address the cavity on time, it can reach your tooth roots and infect the pulp. This can cause immense pain, and the only way to get rid of it is root canal treatment. The procedure involves the removal of the infected pulp, and then the visible structure of the teeth is given a dental crown for added support. People often associate root canal treatment with pain, but this is not true. The pain is caused due to the infected and inflamed pulp. Also, you will be given a local anesthetic for your convenience and comfort. Dr. Charles Krikorian at Dental Specialists Group of Fontainebleau offers effective root canal treatment at our Fontainebleau, FL dental office to alleviate your pain and save your neighboring teeth.

Painless Root Canal Procedure

When the root of a tooth becomes infected or decayed, or an infection or abscess develops inside the tooth, a person likely needs root canal treatment from a dentist or endodontist. You may choose to receive root canal therapy to remove the living tissue, nerves, bacteria, and decay from a tooth and fill it with medicated dental materials to save the tooth.

What to expect at Dental Specialists Group of Fontainebleau

Usually, only one visit is required to complete your root canal treatment; however, two visits are sometimes necessary to kill all the infections effectively. When you come to our dental office for your root canal evaluation, and you are ready to get your root canal treatment done, one of our dentists will first numb the tooth and place a sheet of rubber (rubber dam – if necessary) around the tooth to keep it dry during the procedure. Our dentist will create an access opening at the top of a tooth, removing the pulp, nerve tissue, bacteria, and decay. Once the canal is clean, our dentist will cover it with a filling to protect it while you wait for your dental crown (if necessary). All teeth that receive root canal treatment should get a crown to protect the tooth and receive regular preventive dental exams to ensure they remain healhty and functional
