Scared you might lose a tooth because of an infection or too much decay? Got a painful toothache?
You have two options: get the tooth pulled or get a root canal.
Come in and we’ll help you find the best option for you and your smile.
When possible, we recommend a root canal because 6 times more patients describe it as ‘painless’ with less discomfort during recovery than getting a tooth pulled, according to the American Association of Endodontists.
Additionally, we can leave the structure of your tooth in place with a root canal, thanks to our high-tech dentistry.
So even if your tooth isn’t technically ‘living,’ you’ll be able to feel like everything is normal and chew like nothing ever happened.
After a root canal, you’ll most likely need a metal, ceramic or combination crown to protect your tooth from fracturing or sustaining further damage in the future.
What is endodontics, anyway?
Endodontics is the field within dentistry that studies and treats the fleshy parts of your teeth — you know — where all the painful nerve endings flare if you have a toothache.
Seeing an endodontic specialist like the dentists at Brigham City Smiles will help relieve pain in your mouth without you feeling like you’ve lost a permanent tooth.
