If you need a Leonia root canal, call our offices at Alvin Jacobs, DDS today. Our root canal therapy is done in a calm relaxing atmosphere. Patient should come in first for an exam, unless they are suffering from conditions that may require an emergency root canal. A root canal is designed to save the tooth rather than extracting it. This is a quick painless procedure that is done right in our offices and is a common procedure that we do.
The reasons tooth extractions are needed vary but are done for a few different reasons. Cavities are a main reason, because if they aren’t handled in a timely manner, they can get worse and create decay to the point where the root becomes damaged. Major toothaches may signal the need for a root canal, or that gum disease is present. If you are suffering from a toothache, call our office so that we can schedule you for an appointment to come in and have it looked at, and to schedule a Leonia root canal if needed. Most toothaches can be fixed with a filling if the problem is a simple cavity. But if the pulp becomes inflamed, a root canal may be needed to save the tooth.
Throbbing, swelling, soreness around the tooth, and sensitivity to hot and cold are all signs that something is wrong. An endodontic procedure, or Leonia root canal, can save the tooth and alleviate the need of having to perform an extraction. Oftentimes, when teeth become infected it can cause an abscess or result in periodontal disease, which may damage the tooth’s sensitive inner pulp.
