Are you experiencing tooth pain when chewing, prolonged tooth sensitivity to heat and cold, or swelling or tenderness in the nearby gums? If so, you may benefit from root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is an endodontic treatment that can restore teeth affected by severe decay, infection, or damage. Root canal therapy can effectively prevent the need for tooth extraction. During the root canal treatment, your dentists will remove the infected or decayed portion of the dental pulp and fill in the tooth. Then, to protect the tooth and restore its function, structure, and appearance, they will cap the tooth with a dental crown. Our dentists and dental team at Jackson Dental work hard to ensure that each dental treatment, including root canal therapy, is comfortable and painless. We invite you to contact our dental office in Lapeer, Michigan today to schedule your free consultation. We are committed to helping you achieve optimal oral health!
