Not all problems with your teeth are on the outside. Sometimes, our patients need help with the insides of their teeth, too. This kind of care is known as endodontics, and it specializes in treatments involving the soft, inner tissue of the teeth, which is called the pulp.
When a cavity reaches the nerve of the tooth, it can cause severe pain, swelling, and infection. If the tooth can be saved, a root canal will typically be recommended to stop the pain and infection. A root canal can be an intimidating procedure for many of our patients, but at Discover Dental, we always make sure that all of our treatments are as comfortable, gentle, and painless as possible. If you think you may need endodontic treatment, contact us today to set up a consultation. We can treat your teeth before the problem gets worse!
