Root Canal

Endodontics and Root Canals Services at Mint Dentistry

When teeth become damaged, whether due to tooth decay or an accident, our strong outer tooth enamel can become compromised. And when this occurs, the inner pulp material inside our teeth tends to become infected. The result – is often a painful experience that can lead to further medical problems if gone untreated. This is where receiving a root canal can be a highly effective measure to relieve your pain and increase your overall oral health.

Endodontics is the dental study of the inner pulp of your teeth. And the most common treatment for inner tooth decay issues is root canal. During root canal treatment, the dentists at Mint Dentistry will set up a series of appointments with you to accomplish three steps:

  • First: to remove the infection inside the abscessed tooth that is causing the pain you are experiencing
  • Second: to fill the drilled hole with a temporary filling material
  • Third: to restore your tooth to its former beauty and strength

Most commonly the best restoration method chosen by dentists is to place a crown upon the tooth that required the root canal treatment. However, the goal of the team at Mint Dentistry is to explore every option – to ensure that your teeth remain durable and strong for everyday use – and to live a higher quality of life.

It is common that patients experience some discomfort, pain or sensitivity directly after a root canal procedure. It is suggested that if you experience continued pain or discomfort a few days after the procedure that you should contact your dentist office immediately; however most of the time these symptoms tend to subside with a few days after the completion of the root canal.

An abscessed tooth is nothing to avoid – as it can lead to serious health problems if not treated and repaired quickly. Mint Dentistry is dedicated to providing quality dental health care – but we also ensure that your complete comfort is achieved during any dental procedure; especially a root canal or endodontic treatment.
