Dr. McCoy Will Make the Pain Go Away
The root canal is the inner chamber of your tooth that contains the pulp, which is made up of blood vessels and nerve tissues that nurture the tooth. If these tissues become infected, it can be severely painful.
In cases like these, Dr. McCoy provides root canal therapy, a quick and easy treatment to relieve your pain and save the damaged tooth.
Signs You May Need Root Canal Therapy
Typically, the pulp of your tooth becomes infected when the tooth’s enamel has been worn down by extreme damage or decay. This leaves your nerves and underlying tissues exposed, often resulting in debilitating pain.
Additional factors that can cause the pulp in your tooth to become infected include a faulty crown, an overly large filling, or if the tooth has undergone repeated dental procedures in the past.
Call us right away at (610) 358-5690 if you notice any of the following symptoms:
- Severe toothache
- Pain when chewing
- Prolonged sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
- A discolored tooth
- Swollen and tender gums near the tooth
The Benefits of a Root Canal Procedure
Many patients are under the impression that root canal therapy is painful, but this isn’t true. In fact, neglecting to treat your infected tooth will result in far greater pain. Dr. McCoy will always prioritize your comfort and safety, so you can rest assured that your procedure will run smoothly.
Root canal therapy is a relatively fast procedure and it will save you money down the line, eliminating the need to extract the tooth and replace it with a restoration. This treatment will also prevent the infection from spreading to other teeth or even into your jaw and other parts of your head.
Best of all, your pain will be gone and you can start living with freedom and confidence again.
