Root Canals Sarasota, FL
Gentle Root Canals Are a Reality
Forget What You Thought You Knew About Root Canals
Over the years, root canals have been subject to many misconceptions. The most concerning, is that root canal procedures are painful. When cared for by a certified, trained professional like our dentist, Dr. Michael Childers, root canals are a comfortable way to treat a tooth that has become infected.
The Proof is in Our Patients
When Root Canals Are Necessary
A root canal is a specific procedure used to treat an infected tooth. During a root canal, our dentist drills a hole into the tooth, and thoroughly cleans out the inside. This removes the infection and the source of the discomfort. After the interior of the tooth has been thoroughly sanitized, it is filled in with a compound. Many patients then like to have in-house crowns made to cover the tooth.
Infected Teeth Should Never Be Ignored
The signs of an infected tooth are usually obvious:
- Throbbing at the site of the tooth
- Pain in and around the tooth
- Tooth sensitivity that lasts for a long time
- A bump on the gums near the painful tooth
For your health, treat all symptoms of potential tooth infections seriously
