How Root Canal Therapy Stops A Toothache

Your toothache can grind your day to a halt. It can give you pause before you try to eat and drink. It can also make you understandably concerned about your oral health. Your Redmond, OR dentist can provide feedback about your tooth’s condition so that you can determine what treatment is required. If a persistent or severe tooth pain is affecting you, it can be necessary to perform root canal therapy. This procedure can resolve problems with an infection, and keep the issue from growing gradually worse. At our Redmond, OR dentist’s office, we can perform this procedure before putting a dental crown in place to protect your tooth at the end of your treatment.

Bringing Your Toothache To Your Dentist’s Attention

A toothache can quickly grab your attention. With that said, people sometimes try to ignore the problem, as they can hope it will simply go away before they have to seek treatment. If your discomfort does not subside after a short time, or if the pain feels intense, you should make a point to see your dentist about it. Upon evaluating you, we can determine how we can help. If there are signs that the tooth is infected and in need of root canal therapy, we can provide it to stop the problem from becoming more severe. Going without this treatment can have big consequences – bacteria can spread and affect your health in other ways, and you can lose your tooth!

Scheduling Your Root Canal To Restore Your Oral Health

By performing root canal therapy, we can remove bacteria and infected tissues within the pulp, the tooth’s central chamber. We do this by carefully accessing this area and clearing out the infection, then sealing your pulp to keep it safe. At the conclusion of this work, we can put a crown in place. Crowns cover more than dental fillings, and they can protect teeth that are more vulnerable. Because we have CEREC technology in our office, we can actually provide dental crowns in as little as one visit!

Protecting Your Tooth With A Same-Day Dental Crown

A same-day dental crown can have your tooth safe and secure in less time while still preserving its health and appearance. We can take the necessary measurements to provide a restoration that looks natural and fits comfortably. The information we gather is used to digitally design a restoration, which we then produce in our in-office milling machine before setting on your tooth.
