Severe tooth pain needs immediate attention and may even require an endodontist.
Palm Dental Center has such a specialist on staff to perform root canal therapy and other types of endodontic treatment.
Endodontists specialize in therapy which involves root canals on the soft inner tissue of the tooth, known as the pulp. The word “endodontic” comes from two words: “endo,” which means inside; and “odont,” meaning tooth.
Endodontists complete two or more years of education past dental school to learn this type of treatment. They study root canal techniques and procedures in minute detail to learn how to diagnosis and treat more difficult cases. General dentists will refer their patients to endodontists when needed.
A root canal treatment, or therapy, is used to eradicate pulp infection in a tooth. The pulp of the tooth stretches from the center all the way down through the roots. Root canal therapy is one of the most widely used methods to preserve a patient’s teeth and save them from extraction.
Contrary to procedures in the past, today’s root canal is not painful, but may require an endodontist. Call our root canal doctor at Palm Dental Center at (305) 921-0481 to inquire whether root canal treatment would eliminate your toothache and save your natural tooth.
The hard, white covering of the tooth, called enamel, can become chipped, cracked, or severely decayed, infecting the pulp. To repair it, an endodontist performs a root canal.
Our endodontist in Hialeah can perform both simple and complex root canals. Call today to get consultation to determine if you need this treatment.
Modern dentistry has made getting a root canal fairly easy. The procedure typically takes just a couple of hours, at most.
The cost of the root canal treatment in Hialeah is based on the complexity of the therapy. Depending on what type of tooth is infected, it may have one or more canals. A root canal on a front tooth is less expensive than a root canal will be on a back molar, which has more root canals.
Typically, your dental insurance covers some of the cost of the root canal treatment. To find out what it will cost you, call our office at (305) 921-0481 to schedule a consultation.
After a root canal and crown is finished, the tooth is restored to normalcy. It should be easier to chew, speak, and smile because there was no extraction. The best part of this procedure is that when it is finished, the toothache caused by the infection will be completely gone.
Teeth restored using root canal therapy generally last for a very long time when maintained with proper dental hygiene. Call our Palm Dental Center today to learn how root canal therapy could help you.
