Nerve damage can occur when trauma or bacteria affect the pulp tissue inside of the teeth. Although some damaged teeth may not have any noticeable symptoms, most teeth with endodontic damage do experience some type of traditional symptom.
By treating the nerve, the area of infection can be eliminated and the tooth can be saved. Untreated teeth that have endodontic damage or infections will ultimately result in tooth loss or possible spread of infection to other areas of the mouth.
Endodontic treatment is typically referred to as a “root canal.” It involves removing decay or damaged tooth structure, as well as the infected nerve tissue inside of the tooth. The inner chamber of the tooth is then thoroughly cleansed and a filling material is placed down into the chamber before the tooth is prepared for a crown. In essence, root canals are like a filling that extend further into the tooth and involve the nerve chamber.
We take your comfort seriously and take any necessary steps to ensure that you’re relaxed and feel at ease throughout the entire treatment. Sunny Dental of Wilton Manors provides comfortable endodontic treatment from start-to-finish, without referring our patients to a 3rd party endodontic facility.
