Loveland Dental Group: Root Canal and Oral Surgery Services
Root canals have quite the reputation and it’s not pretty. We at Loveland Dental Group understand your concerns so we want to assure you that while there will be discomfort during a root canal, it is relatively little.
Categorized under restorative dentistry, root canals are prescribed when tooth nerves are affected by severe infection and decay. They entail the removal of nerves, bacteria, decay, and pulp from a tooth, with dental material used to fill up the space left behind. Given the extent of the procedure, root canals are reserved as last resorts in an effort to save a tooth. A lot of people will think that removing the damaged tooth is the best way to you but that’s actually more costly and may give rise to other dental problems down the line.
When to Get a Root Canal?
Call Loveland Dental Group to schedule a consultation with a dentist when you experience any of the following problems:
- Swelling or tenderness around a tooth
- Severe tooth pain
- Sensitivity to hot or cold food or beverage
- Abscess around the gums
However, it is also important to note that dental problems requiring root canals may not present outward signs or symptoms. This is why it’s important that you schedule regular dental checkups and teeth cleaning.
What to Expect
At Loveland Dental Group, our dentist will carry out a thorough examination first before scheduling the procedure. You may be asked to make more than one trip to the dentist to prep for the procedure, however, so planning ahead is advised.
