Root Canal Services in Suffield CT

 

It is important throughout your life to care for your teeth, however not everyone is perfect and sometimes we slip up or have problems beyond our control. Your teeth can become infected over time due to decay, old leaky fillings or damage to a tooth. These are common issues patients have which can be solved through a root canal. A root canal is a dental treatment used to save and repair a tooth that has become inflamed and infected. The infection is caused by bacteria, which reside in the mouth and can invade the tooth. A root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment removes the pulp and nerve allowing us to clean the inside of the tooth and then seal it. An infected tooth can be life threatening if not addressed.

Here are some signs that a root canal is may be needed:

  • Painful chewing or applying pressure to a tooth
  • Discoloration of a tooth
  • Facial swelling and/or swelling of the gums
  • Hot or cold sensitivity in a tooth
  • Pain that comes and goes on a day-to-day basis or symptoms that do not disappear

 

It is important that if you feel any of the symptoms above that you make an appointment so AGN Dental can verify that a root canal is the appropriate procedure. Here at AGN Dental, we utilize anesthesia in order to make your experience relaxed and at ease during your procedure. We also offer preventative laser technology, which we find useful in sterilizing root canal treatments. By doing this, it eliminates bacteria, enhancing the long term outcome of this procedure.

It is usually recommended that a tooth that has undergone a root canal be fitted with a crown. This will strengthen the tooth for greater longevity of the tooth.

Your dental health is important to us. If you are curious about more specific details about root canals or want to schedule an appointment contact our service office in Suffield, CT (860) 668-7303
