Root Canal Therapy in Strongsville
Toothaches and sensitivity are often signs of a bacterial infection in the mouth or symptoms of other issues underlying the gums. Root canal therapy is often a reasonable choice to save a tooth from extraction by eliminating decay before it spreads and causes more serious problems.
Our practice is committed to helping patients preserve optimal oral health by providing conservative dentistry. Call today to schedule an appointment with our Strongsville dental practice.
Save Your Smile From Decay!
Many consider root canal therapy a complex and even painful procedure. However, modern advancements in dentistry have made receiving root canals a routine, easy-to-manage treatment that is essential in preventing the spread of decay. Our practice remains sensitive to our patients’ experience, helping to reduce anxiety and encouraging them through this beneficial procedure.
As your dedicated Strongsville dentists, we are focused on establishing optimal oral health using state-of-the-art methods and technology. We are both sanitary and safe in our approach to your care, ensuring we get things right the first time. Dr. Weiser is meticulous when conducting root canal procedures, making sure that all areas of the canals are clear of decay.
Each patient visiting our practice undergoes a comprehensive examination process to first determine if root canal therapy is necessary. Our team takes detailed x-rays to help Dr. Weiser accurately diagnose the issue.
What Can I Expect?
Root canal therapy has become a routine procedure. After administering an anesthetic or the patient’s choice of sedative, the doctor prepares the tooth for therapy and clears the area of decay. Once bacteria and the infection have been eliminated and the canals sealed, our dentist places a custom porcelain crown to restore the tooth’s structure and protect it from further complications.
We offer same-day emergency care with CEREC crowns. CEREC technology brings the lab into our office and makes your treatment faster and more convenient.
How does a Root Canal Occur?
Infection that has penetrated past the enamel accesses the inner pulp of the tooth. This can cause inflammation, sensitivity, and pain. If left untreated, the infection can spread to the jaw and other teeth.
When infection becomes too severe for root canal therapy, extraction becomes the patient’s last resort. However, most would benefit from keeping their tooth’s root, which is why root canal therapy is such an essential part of dental care. Preserving the root also helps to support surrounding structures and prevents accelerated bone atrophy.
If you or a loved one experience sensitivity or aching around a tooth, you may have an infection. Contact our practice and schedule an appointment for an examination today. Dr. Richard Weiser will provide you with a detailed analysis and determine if root canal therapy is your best treatment option.
