Root Canal An Overview
Dr. Zachary Sisler offers a wide variety of treatments for those suffering from deep-rooted tooth decay, or severely damaged or infected teeth. One of the most efficient solutions for patients with advanced tooth decay or damage is a root canal. A root canal can save your natural tooth and help you to avoid the complex dental problems that tooth loss can present.
A misconception about root canals is that they are painful. However, Dr. Sisler uses advanced technology and high-quality materials to ensure patients are comfortable and pain-free throughout the procedure.
A root canal is a treatment that is used to save a tooth that has been damaged by tooth decay and stops any further damage that might occur if left untreated. Some patients may experience these painful symptoms indicating that they may benefit from a root canal:
- Severe tooth pain, especially when eating or chewing
- Prolonged tooth sensitivity, especially to hot or cold foods and drinks
- Discoloration of the tooth
- Soreness or tenderness to the gum surrounding the affected tooth
After a successful root canal, patients can enjoy many years of healthy smiles.
