Do you have persistent tooth pain, tooth pain while eating, sensitivity to hot and cold that linger? Are you experiencing tenderness or swelling in the gums near the tooth pain? If you are having any of these symptoms, you should book an Albany root canal therapy consultation and evaluation with our expert at Barats Family Dentistry.
Albany root canal therapy is also commonly called a root canal. Root canal therapy is a treatment that is done for the purpose of resolving a dental pulp disorder. The pulp is the lifeline of the tooth. It consists of all of the vital parts that keep it alive: the blood vessels, connective tissue, and nerves. The pulp is located in the center on the tooth, inside the root canal. If the pulp is diseased or damaged and a root canal procedure isn’t done, the infection of the pulp will spread to the bone around the tooth. This would cause the tooth to destabilize because the bone would be not be able to hold the tooth in place. At this point, the only way to avoid an extraction of the infected tooth at this point would be to get root canal therapy. Root canal therapy done as an alternative to an extraction in attempt to save your natural teeth. Saving and keeping you own natural teeth is the ideal option is the what dentists try to do if it’s at all possible. Saving the tooth is very highly beneficial because it can help you avoid the need to get other procedures done, such as bridges and implants. When you consult with your dentist professional like our expert at Barats Family Dentistry, you’ll be evaluated to determine if you need a root canal. Root canal therapy is the best option if possible, to fix the dental pulp disorder and to save your tooth. During the root canal therapy procedure, the diseased pulp will be removed, and the canal will be completely cleaned and sealed.
