Root Canal Therapy
Do you have dental pain that keeps you up at night? Do you avoid your morning cup of coffee or iced tea at lunch because it makes your teeth too sensitive? Do you notice a constant painful throb or ache throughout the day that just won’t seem to go away?
If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, you may have damage to the nerve that sits inside your tooth.
The nerve of a tooth can become damaged or inflamed for many reasons including:
- A deep cavity
- A crack or fracture in the tooth
- Trauma to the tooth exposing the nerve
If any of these conditions occur and are left untreated, you may end up with a dental infection. A dental infection, if left untreated, could lead to swelling, a severe toothache, and eventual bone loss around the tooth.
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, it may be time to consider root canal therapy. A root canal is a procedure where we replace the infected nerve with a solid filling material to reduce your pain and get you back to eating and drinking the things you enjoy.
Rotary Endodontic System
Technology and equipment have come a long way in dentistry over the years. In our St. Louis, MO office, we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of technological innovation and are continually integrating modern equipment into our practice. We are proud to say that we complete root canals with the Wave One Gold rotary endodontic system.
Gone are the days of the three-hour root canal appointment; with our new technology, we can often complete your root canal procedure in a relatively short amount of time by utilizing state of the art endodontic equipment and chairside digital x-rays. In addition to saving you time in our chair, this rotary technology ensures that root canals are safer, more predictable, and give you long-lasting relief from that nagging toothache.
During your procedure, we aim to keep you as comfortable as possible. We offer patient education videos courtesy of DentalMaster Animations to make sure you know exactly what each procedure entails and how it will be completed.
