Do you have lingering pain or sensitivity after eating or drinking something hot or cold? Do you experience sharp pain when you bite or chew food? Toothaches are nearly always a sign that an infection has damaged the pulp inside your tooth root. This can be the result of a crack or fracture, an injury or extensive decay that has reached the interior of your tooth. Without root canal treatment, the infection will continue to cause tooth pain, leading to a painful abscess or the need to extract the tooth. If you’re experiencing a severe toothache, we have a solution for you!
Our prosthodontists at Florida Dental Rejuvenation are highly experienced and well-trained in endodontic treatment including root canals in Delray Beach, FL. A root canal treats and removes dangerous infection, fixing inflammation inside your tooth before it can spread. Don’t let the stigma surrounding this procedure let you put your treatment off. When we offer root canals in Delray Beach, FL, they’re designed to eliminate your tooth pain, instead of causing more pain. This endodontic treatment can even save your natural tooth! We partner with third-party financing companies to ensure that your entire treatment process is as pain-free as we want your mouth to be.
Root canal therapy in Delray Beach, FL involves removing a portion of your tooth’s crown, gaining access to the pulp chamber and clearing out the infection as well as any damaged tissues. Disinfecting and cleaning the canals is the next step, and then we fill them with a hardening material called gutta-percha. We then reseal the tooth, keeping bacteria from entering the chamber, and cover it with a dental crown to ensure that it remains functional and strong after treatment.
Apicoectomy surgery is recommended when a tooth that’s previously had a root canal continues to have residual infection at the tooth root. In this minor procedure, we remove the tip of a tooth’s root to prevent further damage, hopefully saving your tooth. During treatment, our prosthodontists gain access to the tooth root, then remove its tip, and we clean and seal the root canal to block further infection.
When a root canal is not successful or other complications arise from it, endodontic retreatment offers a second chance at saving your natural tooth. During this procedure, the dental crown and filling material are removed, and the inside of your tooth is cleaned and evaluated. The new filling is added to seal your tooth, and the new or existing crown will be re-attached.
Once your endodontic procedure at Florida Dental Rejuvenation is complete, you’ll be able to live a comfortable, functional life once again, with no more tooth pain. We’ll provide you with the necessary instructions to ensure that you recover quickly. In general, you can expect the following benefits from root canal treatment:
