It’s the two words that can send shivers down your spine: root canal. Contrary to popular belief, however, root canals are not that bad!
Do you experience pain in your teeth when eating or drinking hot or cold liquids? Are your gums swollen or tender near the tooth that’s causing you pain? If you have any of these symptoms, it’s best to call Preferred Dental Center in San Antonio, TX right away. We will schedule an appointment as soon as possible so that Dr. Andres Biaggi can give you the proper diagnosis and treatment. If you have these symptoms, more likely than not, we will recommend you have a root canal.
Root Canal Process- What to Expect
If you need a root canal, we will take x-rays to assess how badly the tooth is infected. We will then numb the area to make your experience as pain-free as possible, while Dr. Biaggi makes an opening in the tooth to clean out the decayed pulp. Following this appointment, we will call you back to place a special composite filling in the center of the tooth to ensure it’s protected from pain in the future.
Severe tooth decay and traumatic injuries are usually the most common causes of seeking root canal treatment. Gum disease can also be a factor. Whatever the cause or however bad the situation, you can trust the staff at Preferred Dental Care to provide you with the most advanced care available in San Antonio, TX.
