Your tooth has bothered you off and on for a while now. Though sometimes you can ignore the dull ache, other times you don’t dare chew your food lest you put any pressure on the swelling, inflamed gums, and sensitive tooth. At Schererville Family Dentistry in Schererville, IN, we believe that you shouldn’t have to live with the pain. To help you smile freely once again, we can perform root canal treatment that will alleviate your symptoms and save your tooth.
Our doctors take the procedure seriously, so you can count on us to perform the treatment only after we’ve exhausted other options. As part of our root canal therapy services, we will X-ray your mouth to pinpoint any signs of infection in the surrounding bone, and we’ll thoroughly clean the affected area.
If you still require root canal therapy, we’ll apply local anesthetic and sedation as needed. We’ll then remove the infected pulp and flush out the area to thoroughly eliminate signs of infection. We may recommend additional antibiotics and medication to help your immune system fight off any surviving bacteria.
Once the dentist feels confident that your remaining tooth is healthy, we’ll seal the tooth and fit it with a crown as needed. Though you may experience some discomfort after the initial root canal treatment, you’ll soon be on your way to a healthier, pain-free smile.
You should never ignore serious, chronic tooth pain. If a tooth abscess goes unchecked, the infection can spread to other areas of the face, neck, and head, and you may require a tooth extraction to fully heal.
As soon as you notice any aches or tenderness, don’t wait to contact us and schedule an appointment with a root canal professional.
We also offer emergency root canal and crown care for those with a broken tooth or severe, immediate pain. Schedule an appointment at our Schererville, IN office by calling 219.322.3232.
