Chagrin Falls Root Canals Will Help You Feel Better

- Stop your nagging toothache so you can relax.
- Prevent damage to your healthy teeth and gums.
- Make biting and chewing more comfortable.
- Save your hurting tooth from extraction in most cases.
- Prepare the damaged tooth for a new crown.
Root Canal Therapy Allows You to Keep Your Tooth
Your tooth’s root canals are located in the soft interior of the tooth. They can become infected when tooth decay or tooth damage goes untreated, resulting in pain. In most cases, a root canal will be required to save the tooth at this point. You have no reason to worry about your procedure here, though. We’ll make sure you remain comfortable throughout the entire process with skillfully administered anesthesia and dental sedation, if needed.
After X-rays and an exam, your dentist will perform the root canal procedure by carefully cleaning inside the tooth to prevent reinfection. Your tooth will be sealed with composite resin, the same material we use to make natural-looking, metal-free tooth fillings.
We recommend capping your repaired tooth with a new CEREC crown made right in our office. Our team will make your crown while you wait, so you won’t have to return to have it put on. The crown will strengthen your tooth, prevent further damage, and restore your chewing power. It will also provide you with a more attractive smile.
A root canal will allow you to keep your tooth. Generally, saving a tooth is better for your overall oral health because it preserves your jawbone, which begins deteriorating when you lose a tooth. It also saves you money on an extraction and tooth replacement. However, if your tooth cannot be saved through root canal therapy, we can gently remove it and replace it with a long-lasting dental implant.
