How Does An Infection Occur?

Understanding the purpose of endodontics in Avon begins with understanding the problem

An abscessed tooth occurs due to bacteria penetrating the exterior layers of our teeth, leading to a painful infection, or abscess. The surface of your tooth is made up of a very tough layer that is referred to as the enamel, and it is designed to protect the soft, nerve-central location of our teeth that is called the pulp. When bacteria builds up within plaque and tartar on the surface of our teeth, it can create a harmful and damaging acid through interacting with the sugars that we consume during daily eating habits. This harmful acidic source can quickly begin to eat away at the enamel on our teeth, and burrow down towards the soft-centered pulp. This process is referred to as tooth decay, and it can cause a great deal of damage to not only our smile, but our overall oral health. If the process of tooth decay becomes extensive, it can even go beyond the hardened layer and create cavities that expose the nerves that occupy this central location of our teeth, potentially continuing to cause damage internally, and ultimately allowing bacteria to completely infect this vulnerable area. The unseen problems that are associated with this process include the risk of infection spreading further, gaining access to the rest of our mouths and causing severe gum disease, even damaging our surrounding teeth. Endodontics allow us to completely remove this infected area before more serious damage can be done. We recommend that you contact us right away if you are experiencing severe tooth pain in Avon. We can answer any questions you might have and schedule immediate treatment.

A Simple Root Canal Procedure

Don’t let the name fool you, endodontics in Avon can be a simple and painless solution for saving the tooth entirely

A root canal is a fairly simple procedure that treats and saves millions of teeth per year, and is without a doubt one of the most common forms of treatment surrounding tooth decay in our modern day and age. Despite common belief, endodontic treatment is not a terrifying and painful procedure. As a matter of fact, modern advancements in technology have allowed it to most commonly resemble a simple dental filling in almost every case. Upon arriving at the dentist’s office, we will first perform a general exam that includes digital x-rays in order to ensure that no prior treatment is required, and that no unseen additional problems exist before moving forward with the root canal. The dentist will first apply a basic numbing agent to the surrounding area and await the nerve sensations to dull for several minutes. After numbing has been completed, the dentist will gently and carefully begin to remove the infected area and nerve endings of the tooth, followed by filling the vacant area with a safe and durable material. Retro Dental Group utilizes the latest technology to reduce the amount of time spent in our chair, providing patients with a quick and almost entirely painless procedure. It isn’t uncommon for a root canal to be followed with another dental treatment, such as a dental crown to allow for protection to the surface of the tooth. We are ready to hear from you, so give us a call and schedule your consultation today!

"Crowns Are A Great Follow-Up To Your Treatment"

A root canal in Avon will allow you to regain a healthy and natural smile

"Taking care of your tooth after a root canal treatment will be an essential step in prolonging the lifespan of your healthy smile. The dental crown that will likely be placed on the surface of your remaining natural tooth are made of strong and durable materials that can provide patients with a regained sense of comfort in the food they eat and smile they portray. However, just as we need to take precautions with our original teeth, it is important to understand the long-term limitations of your dental crown. Try to avoid bad habits that involve heavy-duty wear and tear on the crown, such as biting nails, chewing ice cubes, and grinding your teeth. These habits can chip or crack your dental crown and potentially harm the more sensitive area underneath. Being sure to eliminate these kinds of habits and taking the time to care for your crown will provide many years of a strong and healthy-looking smile. We are always happy to answer any questions or concerns you might have following a root canal procedure."
