If you are experiencing serious tooth pain, you may have an infected pulp. The pulp is the soft tissue that lies within teeth and houses nerves and nutrients. When this area becomes infected, it can be very painful. Biltmore Dental offers root canal treatments in Hialeah Gardens to treat your infection and relieve you of your pain.
If you have cracked your tooth, have experienced a deep cavity or if you have had repeated dental procedures, the pulp inside your tooth may be vulnerable to infection. The pulp inside of the teeth is a soft tissue the contains nerves and vital nutrients. When it becomes infected, it causes severe tooth pain and sensitivity to hot and cold. In order to relieve you of your pain and save the tooth, a root canal treatment may be necessary.
At Biltmore Dental, a root canal treatment typically takes two appointments. The procedure begins with X-rays to assess the damage. The dentist will then use local anesthesia to numb the tooth and surrounding gum tissue. This will help us make the procedure as comfortable as possible. Our dentist will then access the inside of the tooth through an incision from the top. All infected materials down to the root will be eliminated, and the structure will be cleaned out. Medicated dental fillings will then be used to fill the tooth in order to provide structure and strength. Finally, a dental crown will be used to protect the structure. Once healed, the tooth can be used normally.
