ROOT CANAL THERAPY
An infected nerve inside your tooth, causing severe damage and decay, can often be remedied with root canal therapy. During your treatment, Dr. Monica Crooks will remove your diseased and dying nerve while killing the bacteria inside your tooth. She will seal the nerve chamber and place a porcelain crown on your tooth for long-lasting protection.
Once your infected tooth has been cleaned, sterilized, and filled, Dr. Crooks will color match and bond a crown securely for natural looking and feeling results.
Our Root Canal Specialists can save you from having to have a tooth extracted. Often, an infection from an untreated cavity or crack leaks bacteria into the living part of your tooth, which kills the nerve, causing pain.
Symptoms of an infection requiring root canal therapy:
Tooth or jaw pain
Swelling around teeth
Sensitivity to hot or cold
Notable tooth injury or crack
Uncharacteristic tooth color
Swelling in your face, neck, or head
The most common alternative to root canal therapy is tooth extraction. Root canal therapy offers significant benefits, including:
Elimination of pain and other symptoms
Preservation of the tooth
Less invasive than a bridge or implant
Less expensive treatment
Don’t let tooth discomfort compromise your quality of life. If you have been dealing with a toothache, or if you have any of the symptoms mentioned above, you may need root canal therapy treatment.
Any medical or dental procedure carries some potential risks, however, choosing an experienced practitioner like Dr. Monica Crooks can minimize your risk of experiencing complications. If you have any questions related to root canal therapy, call Dr. Crooks at (916) 922-2027 or book online today!
