When bacteria causes the pulp of your tooth to become infected or abscessed, the only way to treat it may be through a treatment known as root canal therapy. Palm Beach Gardens dentist, Dr. Rudnick of Rudnick Dentistry, provides root canal therapy designed to protect the longevity of your tooth through comfortable, state-of-the-art dental techniques.
When the pulp of your tooth becomes infected, it can be extremely painful and puts your tooth at risk of being lost. Root canal therapy is meant to free you of this pain and discomfort, while restoring the health of your tooth. Although root canal therapy is often rumored to be painful, advanced dental technologies and comforts prove this stigma wrong; root canal therapy will actually help you feel better! If you are anxious about root canal therapy, or still fear it may be uncomfortable, ask Dr. Rudnick about nitrous oxide to help you feel more relaxed.
During root canal therapy, an opening is created in order to access the infected pulp, which is then removed. Then, using laser dental technology, the canals that once held the infection are cleaned and shaped, treated with disinfectant, and filled with a rubbery material to protect the tooth from becoming infected again. Once complete, your tooth will be capped with a natural-looking porcelain crown or onlay to seal your dental work and leave your tooth looking natural and beautiful.
At Rudnick Dentistry, our goal is to always protect the health and beauty of your teeth. After all, we want them to last you a lifetime! This is the goal of Dr. Rudnick’s comfortable root canal therapy in his Palm Beach Gardens dental office. Contact our office to schedule your consultation today.
