Protect Your Smile With Root Canal Therapy
At American Dental Care in Doylestown, we are dedicated to providing our patients with compassionate, effective, and tailored dentistry. Part of that commitment includes providing restorative root canal therapy when our patients have experienced dental trauma, injury, or irreparable decay.
Why is root canal therapy sometimes necessary?
Root canal therapy is necessary when the pulp, which contains nerves and blood vessels, becomes inflamed or infected due to decay, trauma, or injury. Symptoms of an infection in the root canal may include pain, swelling, and sensitivity to hot and cold. Without treatment, the infection can spread and cause more serious problems.
What are the benefits of root canal therapy?
In addition to removing pain and severe infection, this procedure allows us to save a patient’s natural tooth. This maintains their speaking confidence, speech clarity, and avoids the need for tooth-replacement options.
How long does it take to recover from a root canal?
Recovery time can vary, but it often takes one to two weeks for most patients to heal completely. During this time, it’s important to follow our post-care instructions, including avoiding hard or sticky foods, brushing and flossing carefully, and taking any medications our dentist prescribes.
If you have ongoing tooth pain, significant sensitivity to hot or cold substances, swollen gums, or a tooth that’s noticeably discolored, call us today for a thorough assessment. We’re dedicated to providing patients with quality care and a comfortable experience. Let us help restore your smile!
