Why remove an infected tooth when it can be made healthy and saved?
We want to help preserve your natural teeth for a lifetime.
Root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp, the innermost part of the tooth, is badly decayed or infected. If left untreated, the pulp will die and lead to tooth loss. Hence, saving the tooth requires removal of the infected pulp to prevent the formation of an abscess (a build-up of pus within the body’s tissue, in this case gum tissue).
At Solis Dental Clinic, the combination of precise measurements, use of rotary file technique and local anesthesia result in an especially non-traumatic procedure with minimum pain:
Any tooth has three layers:
If the pulp space is exposed, either due to a large cavity or a fractured tooth, the tissue gets contaminated and infected. Bacterial growth causes pressure and pain as well as possible facial swelling. Eventually, the bacteria kill the pulp and infect the bone structure around the tooth leading to tooth loss. However, infected teeth need not be removed since a root canal treatment can save it. We prefer that you retain your natural teeth for a lifetime and will make every effort to save yours with utmost care and comfort.
