At Owensboro Family Dentistry, we strive to preserve your natural teeth and keep your smile healthy and beautiful throughout your life. When a tooth has been severely compromised by injury or decay, an Owensboro root canal procedure, also known as endodontic treatment, can help save it from extraction. You can rest assured that your smile is in the best of hands at our office. Our skilled and compassionate dentist provides precise and gentle care. Our entire staff prioritizes your comfort and strives to help you feel most at ease.
An Owensboro root canal is typically recommended when there is irreversible damage to a tooth’s nerve supply, which is contained within the dental pulp, beneath the tooth’s outermost biting surface. To determine the best course of care for a tooth with a deep cavity or one that has sustained trauma, we perform a complete assessment of the tooth, using advanced digital radiography, as needed to determine if root canal treatment is necessary. When a tooth is compromised, and the dental pulp is infected or damaged, you may experience a toothache. A toothache can encompass a whole host of unpleasant sensations, including sensitivity to hot and cold, pain when biting down or persistent discomfort. Keep in mind that it’s important to contact our office immediately if you have a toothache, as left untreated a dental problem can result in more serious consequences to your oral health and overall well-being. If you are experiencing a toothache, we’ll get you in right away to diagnose and treat the underlying cause of your oral pain. With a root canal procedure, we can alleviate a toothache, resolve infection, and prevent subsequent damage to your teeth. Our team delivers the most precise and gentle care, keeping you comfortable and informed throughout every visit. Following your root canal procedure, we may recommend placing a dental crown to strengthen and protect your tooth, and to restore its function and appearance. With a 95% success rate, root canal treatment is an effective and predictable course of care, and a tooth that has been treated with a root canal can remain healthy throughout your life.
With the use of advanced technology and methods, your Owensboro root canal treatment should cause no more discomfort than a routine dental filing. At Owensboro Family Dentistry, we mitigate any worry or anxiety you may experience with personalized, compassionate care. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
