Endodontic Care Can Alleviate Tooth Pain

Severe tooth pain and swelling around a tooth could be a sign you need a root canal. When the pulp inside the tooth becomes infected or inflamed, the infection can spread into the surrounding bone and tissue around the root of the tooth. If left untreated, this can cause complete tooth loss and significant pain. A root canal involves cleaning out the infected tissue and sealing and restoring the tooth. We perform root canals at our practice in Brownstown, MI, and other endodontic treatments like an apicoectomy to help save your natural teeth and relieve pain. These procedures can be performed under sedation  so there is minimal discomfort involved.

Common Symptoms Requiring a Root Canal

  • Pus or infection around the root of a tooth
  • Prolonged tooth sensitivity
  • Severe pain when chewing or applying pressure
  • Tooth discoloration or darkening of only one tooth

Even though root canals can be an effective way to treat an infected tooth, there is always the risk of re-infection. In some cases, a root canal may not be feasible or might not be the ideal solution for treating the tooth. In situations where a root canal has failed or a traditional root canal isn’t the best solution, there is another option. Our team also has experience performing apicoectomy procedures, a more complex procedure typically performed only by an endodontist. An apicoectomy is a minor surgical procedure that involves removing the very tip of the tooth root and sealing it to prevent infection. For many patients, this can be a very effective treatment for saving a tooth and preventing further damage.

We offer comprehensive dental care for patients in need of root canals, endodontics, and restorative dentistry services. We offer sedation dentistry to make your visits more comfortable and perform all procedures in-house. Paying attention to the signs of a root canal or a failed root canal and getting timely treatment can help save your tooth.
