Coast Dental Altamonte Springs
Root Canals in Altamonte Springs, FL
If you're experiencing tooth pain or have a damaged tooth, root canal therapy can help save the tooth and alleviate your discomfort. As a leading provider of root canal treatments in Altamonte Springs, FL, our dental practice specializes in repairing and restoring teeth damaged by injury or decay. Root canal therapy is designed to treat the infected pulp chamber of a tooth, addressing painful infections or abscesses that can occur when bacteria spread and create pockets of bacteria and pus beneath the tooth root.
Without timely treatment, an infected tooth can lead to various complications, including swelling, bone loss around the root, severe tooth pain, tooth discoloration, increased sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, and the possibility of the infection spreading into the gums or cheek.
During your visit to our Altamonte Springs office for a root canal procedure, our experienced dentist or endodontist will thoroughly examine your tooth using state-of-the-art technology, including x-rays to assess the condition of the root canals and identify any infection in the jaw bone. To ensure your comfort throughout the procedure, we will administer local anesthesia. Our skilled dental professional will carefully create a small hole in the tooth to access and remove the damaged nerve tissue using specialized root canal files. The tooth will then be meticulously cleaned, and medication may be placed inside to clear any infection. To protect the tooth from contaminants until your next visit, a temporary filling will be placed to seal it securely.
At your follow-up appointment, our Altamonte Springs dentist will fill the interior of the tooth with a sealer paste and a rubber compound called gutta percha. A durable filling is then placed to restore the hole in the enamel. Since a root canal-treated tooth can be weaker, we may recommend a crown, crown and post, or another suitable restoration to strengthen and protect the tooth, ensuring its long-term stability.
Thanks to advanced technology and modern techniques, root canal therapy is now more comfortable and less painful than ever before. Our team at Coast Dental Altamonte Springs is committed to providing exceptional dental care and ensuring your utmost comfort throughout the root canal procedure. With our expertise and dedication to your dental health, we strive to achieve high success rates, with many patients experiencing long-lasting results after root canal therapy combined with a well-fitted crown.
