What Is Causing Your Tooth Pain?
If you develop a tooth pain unexpectedly, or if your tooth continues to hurt after a physical injury, it can be due to an infection. Infections form when cavities are not caught and treated with dental fillings, or when the tooth is exposed to bacteria by physical trauma. If your tooth has been in pain for an extended period of time, it can be a sign that an infection has formed. Letting the matter go unaddressed will give bacteria more time to spread, which leads to the movement of harmful microbes through the tooth’s roots. This can lead to the loss of your tooth, and it will also make you vulnerable to new health issues related to the infection.
Scheduling Root Canal Therapy To Stop A Toothache
Root canal therapy is not always necessary when treating a cavity, but it will be required if a tooth has become infected. It is also used to restore teeth when physical damage occurs. The process of treating a tooth this way requires your dentist to access the space within the tooth to remove the infection as well as damaged or infected tissues. Once that removal occurs, and the tooth’s pulp is cleaned, the space will be sealed to prevent future problems. After this, plans will be made to permanently restore the tooth with a dental crown!
How A Tooth Is Restored After Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy provides important work – without this treatment, an advanced cavity or injury would require the removal of your tooth! Once it is done, a dental crown is needed to keep the tooth protected. At our office, we have technology that allows us to produce same-day crowns. Once your custom crown is produced, we can affix it to the tooth to provide cosmetic and functional support.
