If you have a root infection or tooth trauma, you need a root canal to save your tooth and restore better oral health. Without a root canal, the situation can cost you your tooth.
At the Dental Center of Florence, your dentist uses rotary endodontics, which means a modern, precise, and easier root canal therapy. If you have had a root canal in the past, you may be surprised by the rotary endodontics difference.
What Is a Root Canal Treatment Like?
A root canal treatment in Florence is a simple and straightforward procedure despite the myths. Your dentist numbs the area and gently extracts the infected root and pulp of your tooth. We seal the tooth with a temporary healing filling, and we later close with a permanent filling or a dental crown.
You can lower your risks for root infection by visiting your dentist in Florence at least twice per year and brushing and flossing regularly at home.
You should also wear protective face and mouthguards when playing sports. And a nightguard is essential if you grind and clench your teeth.
