Are you having difficulty eating lately due to intense pain in your teeth? If you are, then you better act fast and schedule root canal treatment as soon as possible. Failure to get a toothache checked out and resolved can cause the infection to spread and lead to even worse dental conditions. After all, “prevention is better than cure.”
When your tooth is in pain, the usual culprit is a damaged or infected tooth nerve or pulp. Even though it’s a fairly common occurrence, the pain that goes along with it is pretty hard to bear. A properly performed root canal is the standard way to resolve the issue, and we are happy to provide treatment for residents of Holladay, Sugar House, and throughout the Salt Lake Valley.
What are Root Canals?
A root canal, as the name implies, is a process that removes the injured or infected soft pulp from your tooth root. This pulp material, once removed, is replaced with a filling agent similar to porcelain crowns. Then, the whole is sealed shut. It might sound like a complicated procedure, but it is completely safe. A fully developed tooth no longer needs the center pulp, and the removal of it will make your tooth feel healthy and normal again.
Root canal procedures have had a bad reputation, but your teeth are in good hands with our Salt Lake City dentistry team. People associate the procedure with something excruciatingly painful, which makes them put off going to the dentist as long as possible. They will keep delaying their appointments until the pain is just too much to bear.
Don’t delay any further, and set an appointment in our Salt Lake City office today. We offer two sedation options and will do our very best to make sure your root canal experience is as comfortable as possible.
Don’t put up with the pain any longer. If you have a toothache, we urge you to call Dr. Allan S. Thomas at 801-322-4900 now for a consultation. We have helped many people in the Sugar House, Holladay, and Salt Lake City areas. Let us help you too!
