Root canal therapy is a necessary treatment of the inner nerve when tooth becomes affected or inflamed by decay or infection. When this happens, the tooth may become extremely sensitive to both pressure and temperature and to be source of intense dental pain. Root canal treatment is a way to repair and save damaged or infected teeth instead of removing it.
An endodontic treatment saves a severely injured, cracked, or decayed tooth when its pulp (the soft inner tissue inside a tooth's root canal) becomes inflamed or infected.
Root canal treatment at our dental office in Norwalk, CT is the chance to relieve pain and save a tooth that could die and have to be removed.
Why Do I Need a Root Canal Therapy?
Risk of infections or abscess inside the tooth pulp
Deep decay has reached the tooth pulp
Injury or trauma to the tooth
Cracks or chips in the teeth
Root Canal Procedure
In a root canal procedure, our dentist in Norwalk, CT cleans, disinfects, and then refills the interior of your tooth, sealing the tooth and preserving the outer shell.
Without its inner tissues, the tooth will now be weak, so a crown placed over the tooth to prevent cracking or breaking.
What to Expect?
Root canal treatment is completed in one or two office visits, depending on the presence of infection and the required treatment plan.
After our dentist will make restoration your tooth continues to function like any other tooth. With good oral hygiene, the restored tooth has the potential to last a lifetime.
Our team of dentists in Norwalk, CT is highly skilled in these types of procedures.
