Your Toothache Can Signal Bigger Problems

Are you experiencing tooth sensitivity or pain when eating, drinking or biting? In most cases, a toothache signals that an infection has invaded your inner tooth, damaging the pulp inside the tooth root. Infection is often caused by a severe tooth crack, severe tooth decay or injury. If left untreated, the infection can worsen and lead to a tooth abscess.  Even worse, it can spread to your jawbone and other parts of your body, which can seriously impact your overall health. An extensive infection may even require a tooth extraction, which is known to cause bone loss. However, with prompt treatment by an experienced dentist like Dr. Ernesto Prida, you can get rid of your toothache and save your tooth!

How Root Canals Can Help You

When the pulp inside your tooth gets infected, it is important for the infection inside the canal to be removed, along with any harmful bacteria. This can save your tooth, and ultimately your overall health. At Stonelodge Dental in McKinney, TX, Dr. Prida will ensure that you are comfortable throughout your root canal procedure. First, he will numb the area with a local anesthetic, ensuring that you won’t feel any pain. You can expect some pressure, which is completely normal, but many of our patients are surprised at how quickly and comfortably the procedure is performed!

We’ll go inside your tooth through the pulp chamber and remove all of the infection, bacteria and damaged pulp. Next, we’ll thoroughly clean the canals and fill them with a sterile, rubberlike material, which seals the canal and stops bacteria from infiltrating the area. During the same visit, Dr. Prida will place a temporary crown on the tooth, giving you the full function of your tooth. As soon as it is ready, a permanent crown will be placed, so your tooth will stay strong for years to come!
