Your teeth should not hurt when you bite into something or try to chew your food. You should not have a toothache, either. This kind of pain can be the result of a tooth infection. The best treatment for such an infection is a root canal.
You can receive this care at 1st in Smiles in Plano, TX.
Treatment is Not Painful
Many people are fearful about root canals because they have heard bad stories from other people, or they recall receiving this treatment when they were younger. With advances in modern dentistry, we can provide this care with little or no pain. Many people report that getting a root canal is no worse than getting a filling.
Remove the Source of Your Pain
A tooth infection is the result of bacteria causing inflammation of the soft tissue inside your teeth. That puts pressure on the nerves and blood vessels inside your teeth. During a root canal, the affected tissues are removed, so your pain can end.
Set the Stage for a Healthy Smile
To complete your treatment, your tooth is filled with a special material and capped with a crown. This allows you to recreate your smile and to bite and chew without pain again.
