No one wants to deal with chronic tooth pain, and if you’re experiencing severe discomfort every time you bite or chew, it could be due to infection or inflammation in the tooth’s soft tissue. This soft tissue, known as the pulp, is found inside the root canal and if it becomes infected, can cause severe pain. At Great American Smiles in Austin, we can provide root canal treatment for your teeth, which can relieve your pain and help restore your beautiful smile.
What Does the Treatment Entail?
When a root canal is performed on a tooth, the dentist will remove the inflamed or infected pulp, and then carefully clean and shape the inside of the canal. If decay is the cause of the infection, the tooth may also need to be filled and a crown placed on top of the tooth. Once the treatment is complete, the tooth should function normally and your pain should be diminished or disappear altogether. If the pain persists, be sure to let us know as soon as possible.
You may experience a bit of pain and sensitivity in the days following the root canal procedure, and we will provide you with instructions on how to safely care for your tooth and treat your pain. Above all, we want you to be comfortable before, during, and after your visit to our office.
If you’re suffering from severe tooth pain, make an appointment with Great American Smiles today. A root canal may be the best option to save your tooth, and we will thoroughly examine and X-ray your teeth to see where the problem lies.
