Your tooth has bothered you off and on for a while now. Though sometimes you can ignore the dull ache, other times you don’t dare chew your food lest you put any pressure on the swelling, inflamed gums, and sensitive tooth.
At Schererville Family Dentistry, PC in Schererville, IN, we believe that you shouldn’t have to live with the pain. To help you smile freely once again, we can perform a root canal that will alleviate your symptoms and save your tooth.
Find Healing and Alleviate Your Pain
Our root canal dentist takes the procedure seriously, so you can count on us to perform the treatment only after we’ve exhausted other options. As part of our root canal prevention services, we will X-ray your mouth to pinpoint any signs of infection in the surrounding bone, and we’ll thoroughly clean the affected area.
If you still require a root canal, we’ll apply local anesthetic and sedation as needed. We’ll then remove the infected pulp and flush out the area to thoroughly eliminate signs of infection. We may recommend additional antibiotics and medication to help your immune system fight off any surviving bacteria.
Once we feel confident that your remaining tooth is healthy, we’ll seal the tooth and fit it with a crown as needed. Though you may experience some discomfort after the initial procedure, you’ll soon be on your way to a healthier, pain-free smile.
Don’t Wait to Schedule a Visit
You should never ignore serious, chronic tooth pain. If a tooth abscess goes unchecked, the infection can spread to other areas of the face, neck, and head, and you may require a tooth extraction to fully heal.
As soon as you notice any aches or tenderness, don’t wait to contact us and schedule an appointment. We also offer emergency root canal care for those with a broken tooth or severe, immediate pain. Schererville, IN residents should call us at (219) 322 – 3232, and Chesterton, IN residents should phone (219) 929 – 9289.
