Where can I get a Childress root canal?
When deep decay or traumatic injury cause irreversible damage to the nerves of your teeth, your dentist may recommend root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is effective for alleviating the painful symptoms of a toothache and for saving a severely damage tooth from extraction. At Eric Green DDS, your provider of Childress root canal, we use state-of-the-art technology and technique to deliver precise and gentle root canal treatment. We use the most advanced approaches to patient comfort, keeping you at ease throughout your dental care treatment.
Root canal therapy addresses damage to the dental pulp, a layer of core tissues, blood vessels and nerves underneath the outermost biting surface of your tooth. When your tooth is first developing, dental pulp plays the important role of supplying your tooth with nutrients. Once an adult tooth is fully matured, it behaves as an alarm, signaling when something is wrong, but is no longer necessary for a tooth to remain functional. Fracture or decay to a tooth may allow bacteria to seep in, infecting the dental pulp. Increased blood flow to the damaged pulp creates a buildup of pressure that causes pain. If you are experiencing a toothache, which may be accompanied by swelling and fever, it’s important to visit your dentist right away. During Childress root canal therapy, your dentist will remove the damaged pulp, clean and shape the pulp chamber and seal the tooth with inert materials to prevent re-infection. A tooth that has been treated with a root canal can remain healthy and functional throughout your life. Following treatment, your dentist may recommend restoring the function and appearance of your tooth with a dental crown.
