Root Canals at Sarasota Bay Dental

A persistent toothache, grayish discoloration, and extreme sensitivity are all signs of an infected tooth, so call us today for immediate treatment if you notice any of these symptoms! If an infected tooth is left untreated, the damage may become more severe and will eventually lead to tooth loss or necessary extraction. Root canal therapy is the best way to save your tooth, relieve pain, and restore an infected tooth. Dr. Miller offers root canals in a caring, judgment-free environment, and we will always do our best to help you save your tooth.

Common Reasons for Root Canals

Enamel and dentin are the two outermost layers of the tooth structure, and these can become damaged or compromised if a cavity is left untreated and reaches the interior of your tooth. Infection can also occur if a tooth is cracked in an injury or accident. The interior pulp of a tooth is filled with nerves and blood vessels, and if bacteria enters the pulp, it can cause a serious toothache and will eventually result in the loss of the tooth if left untreated.

How Does Root Canal Therapy Work?

Root canal therapy is a type of endodontic surgery used to treat infected teeth. Before treatment begins, Dr. Miller will numb, clean, and disinfect your tooth. Next, he will use specialized tools to make a very small hole in your tooth enamel and remove any infected material. Once this process is complete, the area is cleaned and disinfected, and a rubbery substance called “gutta-percha” is injected into your tooth to preserve its structure. Your tooth is then further protected, and even aesthetically enhanced, with a dental crown. You’ll leave our office with a stronger, healthier tooth.

Advantages Of Root Canal Therapy

  • Tooth loss can cause shifting in your bite and increase your risk of gum disease, which can lead to many other oral health issues. A root canal can save your natural tooth and help you avoid these problems altogether.
  • Root canals are much more convenient and affordable than an extraction and tooth replacement, which may become necessary if your infected tooth is left untreated.
  • Infected teeth can be excruciating and can interrupt your daily life. If this is the case, a root canal can give you relief in just a single appointment.
