Root Canal Treatment Explained

There is a tiny channel that runs down the middle of your inner tooth through your roots. This channel is called a root canal. When decay or damage occurs to this area, a procedure, also called a root canal is used to correct and treat the inner area and roots.

When to Consider Root Canal Treatment

Sometimes, the roots and inside of your tooth become damaged, infected, or even begin to decay. There are several different symptoms that might be signs of decay, damage, or infection inside your roots and tooth. Here are a few to look for:

  • Tenderness and soreness near or around your tooth.
  • Swelling around or near your tooth.
  • Pain that occurs when you chew.
  • Experiencing pain when pressure is applied to your tooth.
  • New sensitivity to hot or cold beverages or food.
  • Noticeable darkening of your tooth.
  • Noticeable bumps on your gums near the infected tooth.

If you are currently experiencing any of these symptoms, immediately contact your trusted dentist in Clemson, SC. Ignoring these issues can lead to serious dental and physical health problems that could affect multiple teeth.

Dangers of Avoiding Your Root Canal Treatment

If the inside of your tooth has become infected, a root canal treatment is a safe and long-lasting solution. The procedure can save your tooth and prevent future infection in other teeth.

If you avoid treatment, other issues can occur. These serious issues include:

  • Widespread infection
  • Bacterial infections in the bloodstream also called sepsis.
  • Abscessed teeth
  • Disease in the teeth, gums, or jaw bone
  • Tooth Loss
  • Bone Loss

“I was very impressed with how friendly and helpful everyone was. I love the location, its very convenient to where I work so making it very easy to visit during my lunch hour. Just a great experience, would definitely recommend”

Scott M

“After moving around the country the last few years I am embarrassed to admit making time for dentist appointments was not a high priority. I went in for a check up and cleaning today and they made me feel very comfortable and welcome. My cleaning was more than a bit over due and I was expecting
to be very sore after. Just the opposite, she was very gentle and understating of my procrastination. I made my next appointments with no hesitation. Pleasant experience and that says a lot when it refers to a dentist appointment”
