Have you experienced any of the following symptoms?
If so, your tooth may be infected. Tooth infection is often caused by decay or damage that reaches past the enamel layer and into the inner parts of the tooth. This can cause injury and infection in the dental pulp (soft tissue inside your teeth containing blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue). Without proper treatment, massive infection may occur and require extraction. In order to alleviate the painful symptoms of tooth infection and to save the tooth, Dr. Faluotico in Bath, NH may recommend root canal therapy.
Root Canal Therapy in Bath is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it. During root canal therapy, Dr. Faluotico carefully removes the infected tissues and diseased pulp from the tooth and cleans the pulp chamber and root canals to disinfect the tooth. The tooth is sealed with a root canal filling material, and then a dental crown is placed to restore its structure and functionality. In most cases, we can complete a root canal in Bath, New Hampshire, in just one or several appointments at our office. Today with the dental advances and local anesthetics, most people have little if any pain with a root canal. We work hard to make certain each visit to our dental practice is as comfortable and pleasant as possible. If you suffer from these symptoms or any other type of dental pain, we urge you to contact us today at New Bridge Dental. We are committed to restoring your dental health!
