Root Canal Therapy & Procedures in North Alabama

When the nerve of a tooth becomes infected or damaged root canal therapy will be needed in order to save the tooth. The damaged pulp (or the living tissue within the tooth) will be removed from within the tooth. The space will then be filled with a compatible dental material, which helps restore the tooth to its full function and health.

Dental Associates: Where Your Dental Health Matters

Many people assume that simply removing a damaged, infected, or problematic tooth is the easiest solution. Though this may have temporary benefits, the fact remains that extracting a tooth can ultimately cause expensive problems in the future. Simple tooth extractions could even negatively impact the overall health of adjacent, healthy teeth. At Dental Associates, our doctors strive to provide effective, proactive, and preventative treatments that can ensure lasting oral health.

A root canal procedure may be needed if you display the following symptoms:

  • Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
  • Sharp or lingering tooth pain
  • Injury or crack to the tooth
  • Abscess (pimple) on the gums, surrounding the teeth, or forming at the root of the tooth

In rare instances, patients who need a root canal will display no symptoms at all. To ensure total oral health, make certain that you see our doctor for regular checkups. Our experienced dentists can provide the dental services that you need. Our dentists, specialists, and dental assistants can provide you with careful and comprehensive care instructions immediately after your treatment. To learn how our doctors can best serve you and your family for long-lasting oral health, please visit Dental Associates today!
