Inside every tooth lies a chamber that contains the pulp. Made up of blood vessels, lymph vessels, and nerves the pulp keeps your tooth alive. But, sometimes decay or trauma causes this pulp to become infected and die. This infection causes pressure to build inside the pulp chamber which can result in the patient feeling intense pain. Often, the only way to save a tooth under these circumstances is a root canal treatment.
You may need a root canal treatment if you experience any of the following:
- Throbbing or pain while biting.
- Hot and cold sensitivity.
- Severe decay or injury creating an abscess in the bone.
While the filling is intended to last a lifetime, it may become necessary over time to replace it. The Smiles by Design team makes every effort to keep you comfortable during these procedures. Your anxiety level and overall comfort are our highest priorities.
