What is a Root Canal?
Root canal therapy involves filling the root structure of a deeply damaged tooth. You may need a root canal if decay or trauma have impacted the nerves and soft structures of a tooth.
Root canals can restore the original shape, size, and bite force of your teeth. More importantly, root canals relieve tooth pain and protect the rest of your healthy smile!
Why Get a Root Canal in Flushing?
Root canal therapy is your friend! The rumor that root canals always involve intense pain is false. This procedure will relieve your tooth pain rather than cause it.
There’s no need to be nervous about a root canal here at Parsons Smile Center. We offer customizable sedation levels and local anesthesia to guarantee your comfort. We also take a gentle approach and keep your preferences in mind throughout your procedure.
The alternative to a root canal is extracting the tooth and replacing it. When you choose the more conservative root canal procedure, you can save your natural tooth.
Root canals will safely eliminate your tooth pain and restore your healthy smile. When you choose root canal therapy now, you will avoid more tooth pain and expensive dental work down the road.
Signs of Root Canal Problems
The only way to know for sure if you have an infection that requires a root canal is through a consultation and exam with your dentist. However, you may notice some of the warning signs of root canal problems, including:
- Constant tooth pain or pressure in the mouth
- Swollen and sensitive gums
- Sharp pain when biting down
- Lasting pain after biting into hot or cold foods
