A toothache can be caused by many things—an injury, gum disease, even a popcorn kernel can get pretty painful when it’s stuck! But sometimes a toothache can mean a more serious problem that requires attention. It’s important to call and schedule an appointment at Tobin Dental Care in Garden City as soon as possible..
Root canal therapy is needed when the nerves inside the tooth’s pulp and root canals become damaged or infected. We need to treat the infection and remove the diseased tissue. We then fill in the root canals to replace the tissue that was removed, sealing them against bacteria that could cause infection in the future.
The last step is to place a crown over the tooth to protect and reinforce it.
A root canal will keep your natural tooth intact, which is always our first priority. Our technology and pain management therapies have made root canal treatment a much quicker procedure, and most people feel no pain at all!
