Therapy for root canals
A toothache is often the final warning sign that a tooth is in danger of being lost. A silver lining to a toothache is that it is still possible to save it. Keeping your teeth healthy and beautiful is more important than ever before. It ensures optimal chewing functionality, protects the health of your other teeth, and maintains the natural beauty of your smile.
If you are experiencing the agony of a toothache, give Dr. Kirpaul Chattha and Associates a call. The Dental Room office serves people in Calgary and surrounding areas with gentle and quality care, so teeth remain pain-free, appealing, and healthy.
There are three layers to a tooth: the enamel, the dentin, and the inner chamber, or pulp. Dentists treat enamel and dentin decay with fillings, but if decay reaches the pulp, root canal therapy is usually recommended to eliminate pain. There are many people who are afraid of root canal therapy. Although it takes longer than tooth fillings, root canal therapy is not more painful than a filling.
Toothaches should be taken seriously by individuals. If the infection is not treated promptly, it may result in an abscess and threaten the health of adjacent teeth. It is also possible for the infection to enter the bloodstream and spread to other vital organs. If toothaches are not treated, serious health risks may arise.
Dr. Kirpaul Chattha and Associates Provide Restorative Root Canal Therapy
The pulp of a tooth consists of nerves that become painful and inflamed when infection is present. Dentists relieve the symptoms of a toothache by creating an access point in the crown of the tooth. Small dental files are inserted into the tooth to remove the infected pulp from the tooth’s inner canal. Afterward, the canal is disinfected, and the dentist places a substance called gutta percha inside to seal the chamber.
Usually, when teeth require a root canal, advanced tooth decay has damaged the tooth. After a root canal, the tooth can also become brittle. Dr. Chattha and Associates cap treated teeth with crowns to protect the tooth from further damage and permit the tooth’s function to continue.
The Dental Room Preserves Beauty and Function with Quality Dental Crowns
Dr. Chattha and Associates offer several different types of high-quality crowns made of ceramic, porcelain, and zirconia. Depending on the unique conditions of your teeth and your preferences, Dr. Chattha and Associates consult with patients to determine which type of crown is best for them.
An impression is taken, using a molding paste, and our highly skilled dental lab designs a crown to the specifics of your teeth. Crowns shine with the same luster of natural smiles, and they are matched to neighboring teeth. Crowns are also strong and last a lifetime.
