Root Canal Treatment
Individuals who would like a bright and healthy smile are often going to need a wide range of services from our dentist in Framingham. This includes a root canal treatment, one of the most important procedures that we offer our patients that will allow us to remove any amount of damage and preserve the overall health of the mouth.
The root canal treatment is going to begin with our dentist thoroughly examining the patient’s mouth in order to detect any major abnormalities that may affect the final results of the treatment. One of the most common reasons that we suggest our patients undergo this procedure is due to larger amounts of tooth decay. If tooth decay is left untreated, abscesses may begin to form and can become extremely painful, often requiring intensive oral surgery.
We also provide root canal treatment to patients that have recently received trauma to the face and damaged their teeth. This is especially common for athletes or those that forgo safety equipment while engaging in physical activities. For smaller amounts of damage, we can often use dental bonding to restore the form and function of the mouth. If the nerve has become exposed though, patients may require a tooth canal in order to restore the integrity of their teeth.
Once we have examined the mouth and taken X-rays, our dentist can then begin to remove the decay or the nerve of the tooth while the patient is anesthetized. Once the tooth and root canal system has been entirely cleaned out, we can then choose which restorative options may be available to the patient. Some of the most common choices include tooth-colored fillings or crowns that are going to allow the patient to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
Whether you have avoided the dentist for years or are simply looking for a new dental office that is going to provide a full line of services in a friendly atmosphere, we are here to help. If you have recently experienced pain in or around your teeth and are suffering from disease or decay, contact us today to see if a root canal treatment may be right for you.
