Root Canal Therapy

Preserving Your Natural Smile

Dentist Gulf Shores

Root canal therapy is a vital procedure aimed at salvaging the integrity of an inflamed tooth. Within each tooth lies a delicate network of nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue, crucial for its nourishment and strength. However, when decay compromises the enamel, this pulp can fall victim to bacterial infection. 

Indications of a pulp infection manifest as visible swelling of the tooth, heightened sensitivity to temperature, or persistent pain in the affected tooth and surrounding gums. Should you

experience any of these symptoms, we encourage you to promptly reach out to us at Serenity Dental Studio for a comprehensive consultation. 

Addressing an infected tooth pulp necessitates root canal treatment. This procedure entails meticulously removing the infected pulp from within the tooth chamber and thoroughly cleansing the canals with a disinfectant solution. To ensure your utmost comfort throughout the process, we administer local anesthesia or sedation as needed. 

Before concluding your visit, we apply a temporary filling over the treated tooth to safeguard it until the full restoration is completed. It’s normal to experience some sensitivity in the treated tooth during the initial days, for which we will provide guidance on appropriate medications. Refrain from exerting pressure on the treated tooth while eating until the comprehensive restoration is performed. Should any concerns arise, please do not hesitate to contact us promptly. 

If the preservation of your natural tooth is your goal, root canal therapy offers a viable solution. Reach out to us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Angel Vasquez and take the first step toward maintaining your radiant smile.
