Syracuse Root Canal Specialist
Although a root canal treatment (also called root canal therapy and endodontic therapy) has long had a foreboding image, you can put your root canal fears to rest with TLC Dental Group, the home of “Gentle Dentistry.” You will only experience relief from dental discomfort in the gentle hands of our damaged teeth and gum specialists who have years of experience in successfully addressing the root canal symptoms of our patients.
Root Canal Infection, Root Canal Pain, Root Canal Causes, & Root Canal Risks
Severely damaged or infected tooth pulp, caused by an untreated tooth cavity or a fractured tooth, can result in acute root canal pain. It also can produce an abscess in the jawbone and pose extremely serious health risks. The dental infection may spread bacteria to other teeth and to the bloodstream causing possibly severe infections in other parts of the body.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy removes this damaged or infected dental pulp from the tooth’s pulp chamber and root canals, treats any infection, fills the pulp chamber and root canals, and secures the tooth.
Root Canal Symptoms
A tooth might need root canal therapy if:
- It hurts when you bite down on it, touch or push it
- It is sensitive to heat
- It is sensitive to cold for more than a couple of seconds
- There is swelling near the tooth
- It is discolored regardless of pain
- It is broken
TLC Root Canal Treatment
Should you suffer from any of these root canal symptoms, it is important that you phone TLC Dental Group at (315) 637-7684 for prompt root canal treatment. We will carefully examine your tooth and gums and draw upon our years of experience and training to determine whether a root canal procedure would be the most appropriate treatment for the tooth. If our tests are affirmative, we would provide for the above root canal procedure and at its conclusion emplace either a tooth filling or a dental crown on the tooth to secure both your dental and general health.
In this manner your dental infection will be replaced with a healthy tooth and gum. Your dental concerns will become dental confidence. And your dental discomfort will be transformed into a “Dream Smile.”
