If one of your teeth has become infected from the inside the tooth enamel, you may experience a persistent toothache or extreme tooth sensitivity. Drs. Jeffrey T. Root and John Krishingnerat Water Oak Dental Group typically recommend a root canal in Brevard, NC when we know we can still save the tooth while eliminating the infected pulp inside the tooth structure. Getting a root canal in a timely manner can prevent further problems and save your smile.
When the inside of the tooth has become infected, the infection can spread to other teeth and parts of the mouth which in turn causes more damage. Our goal is to stop the infection in its tracks with root canal treatment and ultimately save your natural tooth. While some patients are asymptomatic others experience one or more of these common symptoms necessitating a root canal:
Our practice located close to Hendersonville, NC and Etowah, NC is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and we use 3D imaging for some of the more complex root canal procedures. Drs. Jeffrey T. Root and John Krishingner utilize these advanced tools and technologies to perform root canal procedures with a higher degree of accuracy and also minimize any pain and discomfort a patient may experience during the root canal treatment.
Getting a root canal at just the right time can offset some of the costs of more complex procedures later on — especially if the infection spreads and causes irreversible damage to other teeth. Schedule your appointment for a root canal at Water Oak Dental today!
