It’s unfortunate that root canal therapy has such poor associations. The reality is that root canals save your teeth and remove the pain associated with deep decay and infection. Our patients have been very pleased with their root canals in Greeley, CO.
If you have a root infection, you may notice tooth pain, swelling, and a blister on your gum. Other times, root infection is asymptomatic, and your dentist finds the infection during a routine examination. When the latter happens, it usually means the root or nerve is not viable and able to conduct pain.
If you experience tooth pain, swelling, and a blister on your gum, it’s important to contact our 80634 dental office as soon as possible. Mild pain can become excruciating in a matter of hours, and we do not want you to go through that!
Root Canals in West Greeley, CO
The root canal procedure is simple. Your dentist numbs the area and gently removes the infected root and pulp. While you may feel pressure, you typically do not feel pain. Your dentist then closes the tooth with a temporary filling. At a future appointment, we provide a permanent filling or a dental crown—the latter if the tooth is vulnerable to fracture.
If you have a toothache or other oral health changes, contact your Greeley, CO dentist today.
