Treat Infection and Save your Smile
If you are experiencing pain or swelling in your mouth around a certain tooth, you may have an infection. The common solution to tooth infection is a root canal, which has the goal of saving your tooth and relieving pain. If you ignore any infection or discomfort, you become more susceptible to health problems, including tooth loss, spreading of the infection or an abscess forming. By receiving a root canal, you can save your tooth and your smile.
Root Canal Treatment with Advanced Technology
Dr. Abraham John utilizes state-of-the-art advanced technology when performing any root canal treatment. With the use of The Wand®, we can provide localized anesthesia in a gentle manner for those who may fear needles. After your tooth is numbed, Dr. John may use the WaterLase® dental laser combined with Piezo electric shapers and irrigation to gently remove the infection and clean out the tooth. After the root canal procedure is finished, we can use our CEREC® machine to create a dental crown that very day. You will be able to leave our office with a fully functioning and treated tooth.
Signs You May Need a Root Canal
- Persistent toothache
- Tooth sensitivity to hot and cold beverages
- Pain or sensitivity when biting or chewing
- Swelling in the face where the pain occurs
- Swollen lymph nodes
