In the past, having a tooth with a diseased nerve often meant that you would probably lose that tooth. Today, with our root canal treatment in Derby, Kansas, your tooth can be saved with a high rate of success. When a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp tissue, and germs can cause an infection inside the tooth. If left untreated, it is likely that an abscess will form. If the infected tissue is not removed, pain and swelling can result. This can not only injure your jawbone but it is also detrimental to your overall health.
Root canal treatment involves one to three visits. During treatment at Dental Professionals LLC, our dentists remove the infected tissue. Next, the interior of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Finally, the tooth is filled with a dental composite. If your tooth has extensive decay, Dr. Ysidro, Dr. Bo Zhang or Dr. Barakeh may suggest placing a dental crown on your tooth to strengthen it and help prevent it from breaking. As long as you continue to care for your teeth and gums with regular brushing, flossing, and checkups, your restored tooth can last a lifetime. Please call 316-788-2118 to learn more about this service and how it can help restore your smile.
