Endodontist Dental Care and Root Canal Treatment in St. Cloud, MN
Root Canal Specialist
Sometimes a common filling isn’t enough to repair a decayed tooth, or isn’t put in place soon enough to stop it from compromising the root of the tooth. In cases such as this, a root canal treatment may be necessary to alleviate tooth pain and protect the root from further damage. Having a root canal done quickly is crucial to keeping your tooth, leaving it exposed for too long may require the tooth to be extracted. Though they may sound scary, root canals are perfectly safe and our dentists are able to carry out the procedure with compassion, at an affordable rate. Please note, due to the complexity of a multiple root canal treatment, we refer a high percentage of root canals to area specialty clinics for more complex procedures.
Protect Nerve-Damaged Teeth with a Root Canal
Nerve-damaged teeth are an all-too-common occurrence, and there are many potential causes of this including:
- Deep decay
- Repeated dental procedures on the same tooth
- Blunt force trauma, new or old injuries
During a root canal, the pulp inside the tooth is taken out and replaced by a sealing agent after the inside is cleaned. If you allow the root to stay infected the infection may spread and cause more pain, damage to your jaw bone and more. By saving the tooth through endodontic treatment (also known as root canals), you also protect the bone, which supports the tooth root. Besides saving your tooth, our dentists and endodontists can prevent and eliminate any pain radiating from the affected tooth as a long-term solution.
