General Dentistry Services
Commonly called a root canal, root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. This may occur if injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. When left untreated, this type of infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and necessitate tooth extraction.
To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, our skilled dentists at Smile Advanced Dental Care will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth, clean the tooth, and fill it with a medicated material. We will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure. In most cases, a root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office in Summerville, SC.
Root canal treatment has a reputation for being a painful treatment. In reality, it is often completed with minimal discomfort thanks to advanced techniques, tools, and anesthesia. Our dentists and entire team work hard to provide you with a pleasant, comfortable experience each time you visit our office.
If you have a toothache or a tooth that is sensitive to heat, cold, or pressure, Smile Advanced Dental Center can help at 843-873-1261.
