What are the benefits of root canal therapy?
Signs of an infection are often subtle at first, so it is important to receive regular dental exams to ensure any dental infection is promptly treated with a filling or other restorative dentistry treatment. Dr. Rink uses local anesthetic combined with sedation to minimize any potential discomfort.
Seeking treatment for an infected root canal is beneficial in a number of ways, including:
- Eliminating the pain and sensitivity caused by the infection
- Preventing further tooth decay
- Preserving as much of the natural tooth structure as possible
- Avoiding the need for extraction
Thanks to our CEREC technology, root canal therapy no longer requires two separate appointments. Now, after performing the procedure, we can immediately take impressions of the tooth and fabricate a custom ceramic crown. In a matter of minutes, the crown can fit over your tooth, protecting it from damage and bacteria.
