Save Your Tooth and Your Smile with Modern Root Canal Therapy
Is tooth pain keeping you up at night, or causing you to miss school or work? You may need root canal therapy. Root canals are common dental procedures aimed at reducing pain from an infected or internally damaged tooth. Tooth pain interferes with your health and comfort. Root canal treatment not only resolves such oral pain – it can also save your tooth from extraction. Leaving an infected tooth untreated invites further oral concerns like bone damage and even systemic illness. Do not risk your health and smile! Dr. Antonino Barbaro can treat the source of your tooth pain with modern, effective treatment.
When Is Root Canal Therapy Needed?
Root canals eliminate inflammation and infection from within the center (pulp) of the tooth. When performing a root canal, Dr. Barbaro gently and thoroughly removes damaged and infected tissue. He then places a special filling material to strengthen the tooth structure from within. Once healed, a natural-looking crown is typically placed to cover and protect your tooth.
Several signs and symptoms may indicate the need for a root canal:
- Tooth pain
- Temperature sensitivity
- Abscessed tooth
- Tooth discoloration
- Extensive decay
- Cracked, broken or worn tooth
- Injury or trauma
