Root Canal Treatment at HealthPoint Dental

Illustration of inside of toothAt HealthPoint Dental, you can find a broad range of solutions to keep your smile healthy and bright. A root canal treatment, or endodontic therapy, can preserve your smile. A tooth that would otherwise require extraction can be saved with this procedure. Though you may think that a root canal must involve discomfort, today’s modern dentistry will keep your root canal treatment simple for you.

What a Root Canal Involves

A root canal treatment addresses a tooth that has an infection deep inside, affecting the nerve of the tooth. The infection is removed and the area cleaned, then filled and sealed off so that the infection can’t recur.

Once your tooth no longer has any disease present, it still requires an extra measure of strength. The infection weakens your tooth, but a dental crown can restore its stability. We can place a crown over the tooth so that you can enjoy the full function of your smile.

The Signs You Need a Root Canal

Do you think that you may need a root canal? There are some symptoms that you should watch out for:

  • A darkened tooth
  • Drainage around your gum line
  • Fractured teeth
  • Severe pain
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • What looks like a pimple on your gums
