Pain Relief and Tooth Preservation with Root Canal Therapy

Dentist Vero Beach

Root canal therapy treats the inflamed center of a tooth, which contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. Infection can occur if the enamel decays, leading to symptoms like swelling, sensitivity to temperature, and pain. During a root canal, the dentist removes the infected pulp, cleans the canals with a disinfecting solution, and provides local anesthesia or sedation for comfort. A temporary filling is placed until the full restoration is complete, and the tooth may be sensitive for a few days. Avoid using the treated tooth for eating until fully restored. Root canal therapy can preserve your tooth—contact Dr. Ember Courtney-Lima or Dr. Anthony Lima at Vero Beach Dentistry for a consultation.
