When you have frequent, throbbing tooth pain, you have a hard time enjoying life. The simplest tasks, from chewing to smiling, become a chore.
Fortunately, you can find a simple solution: root canal therapy from Tony Parsley, DMD. Even though many people worry about root canals, Dr. Parsley can use this treatment to save your tooth and eliminate your pain.
How Do Root Canals Help?
In spite of the fear that surrounds it, root canal therapy is a standard procedure that keeps your tooth intact. It’s also relatively pain-free, since Dr. Parsley will numb the area before the procedure.
If your dentist says you need a root canal, the inside of your tooth, called the pulp, is infected. If left untreated, you’ll continue to suffer from swelling, inflammation, possible bone or tooth loss, and pain.
During a root canal, the infected pulp is removed. Then the inside of your tooth is cleaned to prevent further infection. Dr. Parsley then fills and seals the tooth and adds a crown, if needed. Your tooth will continue to look natural and function just as it did before the root canal.
