Endodontics therapy becomes necessary when the inner nerve of a tooth becomes compromised by decay or infection. When this happens, the tooth may become extremely sensitive to both pressure and temperature, and intense pain can be expected. In the initial stages of decay and infection, it is possible that no symptoms would be present. However, in the advanced stages of decay and infection an abscess (pimple-like inflammation on the gums) will form.
Other problems may arise with your teeth and gums that may need serious treatment, depending on the diagnosis we can offer you the following services that will help:
- Root Canal Therapy
- Dental Implants
- Trauma Reconstruction
- Tooth Extraction
The restoration that Oral Surgery and Endodontic therapy provides will usually last a lifetime. It will provide full functionality back to your tooth and mouth. There may be a need in the future to retreat the tooth, but this would only be necessary if a new, separate infection arose. It is important to take care of your teeth, especially after treatments.
