Don’t ignore tooth pain. If you suspect you have an abscessed tooth, you’ll need to call our office as soon as possible to schedule emergency dental care. Once a cavity is deep enough to breach the living tissue inside your tooth, you’ll need to have a root canal procedure. Our root canal dentists will do everything they can to save your tooth from extraction.
If your tooth is infected, it’s important to come in for a root canal while the tooth can still be saved.
It’s important that you see our dentist every 6 months for a routine teeth cleaning and oral examination. Often, there are no signs you need root canal therapy until it’s too late.
During the root canal procedure, we will first numb the tooth before drilling an access hole through the top. Next, our dentist will remove infected tooth pulp using root canal files of increasing size. After your tooth has been flushed out and cleaned, our root canal dentists will seal it and place a filling over top. After root canal treatment, you’ll most likely need a dental crown to restore the tooth to its natural function and appearance.
At Grand Haven Smiles, we’re happy to explain the root canal procedure at your dental exam in order to help you make the best choice for your teeth. To schedule your appointment with one of our Grand Haven, MI root canal dentists, give our office a call at (616) 209-4704.
