Non-Surgical Root Canal Therapy From Your Dentists in Rochester
A dental procedure designed to treat a tooth that is significantly injured, infected, or damaged, there are two types of root canal therapies available – surgical and non-surgical. At Cornerstone Dental, we’re pleased to offer our patients non-surgical therapy to quickly and effectively treat a damaged or injured tooth.
How can I tell if a tooth requires root canal therapy?
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, call our office right away for a thorough assessment:
- Severe toothache pain that radiates to your jaw, neck, or ear
- Sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures that lingers long after exposure
- Tenderness or swelling in your gums
- Darkening of the tooth
- A growth on your gums that resembles a pimple.
What’s the difference between non-surgical and surgical root canal therapy?
Non-surgical root canal therapy is the most common type of root canal (or endodontic) therapy performed. This procedure involves cleaning out the infected or damaged tissue from the inside of the tooth – much like what happens when a deep filling is being treated – and sealing it to protect it from future damage.
There are many benefits of non-surgical root canal therapy, including the fact that it can quickly eradicate pain and infection while helping preserve a patient's smile.
Surgical root canal therapy, on the other hand, is performed when a tooth is too infected for non-surgical root canal therapy and may require an incision near the gum to remove the infection.
If you have a damaged tooth, root canal therapy can painlessly help restore your smile. Call our office today with any questions or to arrange a consultation!
