Are you experiencing severe tooth pain when you bite or chew? This could be a sign of a tooth infection that has spread to the pulp of your tooth, causing damage to blood vessels and nerves. An untreated infection can eventually kill a tooth, requiring that it be removed. Through urgent root canal therapy, Dr. Drew Boyd of Urgent Dental of Denver can eliminate the pain caused by a tooth infection and restore your tooth to save it from extraction. A visit to our Denver, Colorado clinic can determine if you have an oral infection that requires root canal treatment.
Contrary to popular opinion, root canals aren’t complex or painful treatments. They’re fairly routine procedures to treat tooth infections to help preserve your smile. If you have an infection that risks your tooth and oral health, Dr. Boyd may recommend root canal therapy.
We’ll start by numbing your tooth to prevent pain and discomfort. Then, we’ll drill your tooth to access the infected pulp so it can be removed. Next, we’ll clean and disinfect the inner chamber of your tooth and its canals to keep the infection from spreading. Once your tooth is free of infection, we’ll seal it with a special filling to protect it from future infection and decay. The final step is crowning your tooth to strengthen its weakened structure. You’ll then be able to use your tooth again for biting and chewing.
For severe tooth infections, Dr. Boyd can perform urgent root canal treatment for instant pain relief and restoration of your tooth.
When possible, we prefer to treat and save compromised teeth rather than having them extracted. Caught early enough, a root canal can do just that to preserve your smile. By performing a root canal, Dr. Boyd can:
