At Kellerman Dental, we provide evaluation and diagnosis of toothaches and root canal procedures. We also offer treatment for cavities. Toothaches can result from a few different things, such as the need for a root canal or gum disease. If you are suffering from a toothache, call our office to schedule an appointment to come in.
If the problem is a simple cavity, it can be fixed with a filling. But if the pulp inside becomes inflamed, you may need a root canal to save the tooth. Teeth have a substance called pulp inside, which nourishes the tooth around them. If tooth decay sets in, it can damage the pulp inside. Symptoms that the pulp may be inflamed include; heat sensitivity, cold sensitivity, and sensitivity on the tooth itself. A root canal in Glen Carbon is designed to remove the infected pulp, saving the tooth from needing extraction. The procedure can be done in just a couple of visits. After the treatment, a crown is put over the tooth to protect it. Patients should take care of the root canal site and be sure to keep it clean and flossed so that no debris can get in and harm the sensitive area.
A root canal in Glen Carbon is not painful, and once completed, most patients have a 90% success rate. If the procedure is not successful, it can be attempted a second time. The entire process involves only local anesthesia. For more information on toothaches, call our office today to speak to a staff member and find out more about how we can help save your tooth from being extracted. Please don’t wait for a toothache to turn into something worse; call us at 618-228-3100 today before it gets worse. At Kellerman Dental, you don’t have to live another day in pain.
