Save Your Tooth With Our Root Canal Procedure
Do you experience pain in a particular tooth that won’t go away? If the pain keeps getting worse, you may have an infected or abscessed tooth. A root canal treatment at Plainview Dental repairs and saves your tooth instead of removing it.
A root canal saves a severely damaged or decaying tooth, particularly one with an infection. Contact us today to schedule your next appointment.
What Is a Root Canal Treatment?
Your tooth’s soft tissue (pulp) provides nourishment for your tooth. If the pulp becomes infected because of a deep cavity or a crack or fracture, you will feel pain and swelling. An abscess may form inside the tooth or within the bone surrounding the root of the tooth.
If the infection progresses, it can also put you at risk of losing your tooth completely. A root canal treatment stops bacteria from further damaging the bone that keeps your tooth connected to your jaw.
