Reassuring Root Canals

If you are experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity, endodontics may be the solution to save your tooth from further harm. As a trusted dental office serving the community of Middletown, DE, we are eager to educate you on what endodontic therapy is and how our comprehensive services can help relieve your pain and improve your oral health.

Endodontic Treatment Defined

Endodontic treatment is a dental procedure that involves removing the infected or inflamed dental pulp from inside the tooth, cleaning and shaping the inner layers of the tooth, and sealing them to prevent further infection. The dental pulp is a soft tissue containing nerves and blood vessels, and it can become damaged or infected due to deep decay, a chip or crack in the tooth, physical trauma, or gum disease. Endodontic treatment aims to save the natural tooth structure and alleviate pain while preventing the need for tooth extraction and costly replacements like dental implants.

The Root Canal Process

While there are many types of endodontic treatment, root canals are amongst the most common. Although root canals tend to have a bad reputation, this dental procedure fixes an infected or damaged tooth and saves it from extraction. During this procedure, Dr. Uram will remove the infected or damaged nerve inside the tooth, clean it thoroughly, and then seal it. If enough of the natural tooth must be removed because of decay, a dental crown may be placed on top of the affected tooth.
