Now You Can Save Your Tooth by Undergoing a Simple Root Canal Service from a Dentist in Pembroke Pines, FL

Root Canal Service at Pines Dental Associates in Pembroke Pines FL Area

To many dental patients, a root canal seems terrifying. The truth is that getting a root canal is no more painful than many other routine dental procedures such as receiving a crown or a filling. A root canal is a perfectly safe and effective method for saving a tooth before it may need extraction. Have you ever thought to yourself “where can I find root canal treatment near me?” If you are looking for a dentist near you that performs root canal service, look no further than Dr. Milton Ruiz at Pines Dental Associates in Pembroke Pines, FL. At Pines Dental, you can rest easy knowing you are in perfectly capable hands.

How a Root Canal Can Save Your Tooth

A root canal procedure is performed with the intent of saving a tooth so that it will not need to be extracted. When the inner pulp of a tooth becomes infected from advanced dental decay, it can become a threat to the rest of your mouth as the infection can spread. If left untreated, the tooth would need to be extracted.

With a root canal, local anesthesia will be applied to the infected area around the tooth so that the area is numb, and no pain will be felt during the procedure. The infected tooth will then be accessed so that the pulp chamber can be reached. This infected pulp is then removed, and the inside of the tooth disinfected. At this point, the tooth is “dead” and a crown will need to be applied so that you will still have a fully functional bite.

After the Root Canal

Once the root canal has been completed, the dead tooth will be brittle and need protection from either a crown or composite resin. Your dentist will determine the best method for making sure your bite is as strong as it was before the root canal and will discuss options with you.

If you are experiencing significant tooth pain, it could be due to advanced decay and a root canal could be your next step. If this sounds like your situation, please give a call to Pines Dental Associates in Pembroke Pines, Fl at (954) 715-4660 for an appointment.
