Root canal in Worcester
If you have a tooth that becomes painful when you eat something that is hot or cold, or when pressure is placed upon it, you probably have a tooth that needs to receive root canal treatment. At our dental practice, Pearla Dental, our expert dentist can provide you with a root canal in Worcester
to save your tooth.
During a root canal procedure, all infected and damaged pulp is removed from the tooth. It is very important that the tooth is able to properly heal, and that the gums remain healthy, in order for the tooth to survive. Our dentist will probably let you know that you will need to get a crown to cover and protect the tooth sometime after the root canal in Worcester is completed. You do not want to have bacteria collect around the outside of the crown, and work its way toward the center of the tooth. It is also important that the tooth is kept as free of plaque as possible, to make sure that there are no bacteria that tries to enter the tooth. If bacteria enter the tooth, you will not feel any tooth pain, or realize it until your dentist examines the tooth. So, if you do get a dental cavity, you will not be alerted to the fact that this is occurring, unless you come to see our dentist at our dental practice. Root canal seals can also develop tiny cracks in them. If there are bacteria on your tooth, it is more likely that the tooth will become reinfected. Additionally, if you do not practice excellent oral hygiene, you may develop gum disease which can cause your tooth to loosen or fall out. There is no reason why your root canal tooth should not be able to remain intact in your mouth, as long as any other tooth. However, it is even more important now that you practice excellent oral hygiene.
